Dangers of underage drinking stressed as NH prom, graduation season arrives
As a result, it is also the perfect time to warn area residents — both young and old — about the dangers of underage drinking through a coordinated campaign of speakers, advertising and police presence, according to Deputy Roland Morin of the Strafford County Sheriff’s Office.
Morin said the effort — which is meant to reach across the entire county — helps remind area residents and visitors that it is illegal for people to host “underage” parties.
Kathi Meyer Sullivan, who has been passionately sharing Taylor’s story since 2008, has been working closely with Dover Youth to Youth for the past six years.
Johanna Howman, grant manager for the New Hampshire Department of Justice, said these efforts have made an impact across the state, which has previously received up to $360,000 in federal grants. Unfortunately, she added, officials have to focus on the most successful efforts as there is only $60,000 in assistance this year.
“We’re just trying to get the word out,” Howman said.
