Do your teens drink?

Would you know if your teens drink?

That the local police are on the alert to watch for teen drinking given the Taylor Meyer tragedy is quite appropriate.

A traffic stop on King St Saturday evening resulted in five arrests for drinking and possession of liquor by 17 and 18 year-olds. The MetroWest Health Survey was good in detailing how pervasive drinking is amongst the teenagers.

What we as a community will do about this problem to prevent additional tragedies remains to be seen.

One effort underway is WASTED, When Alcohol Starts To Effect Decisions, is being held Tuesday evening, December 2, 7:00 PM at Franklin High School.

Be there.
The teens in Franklin matter!
