Two key area events this month

I hope you are enjoying your summer.

I am sending this quick note to let you know about two events taking place in our area this month. They include a Thriving in College program for teens and their parents on Tuesday, August 9 and August 16. The other is the SAFE Coalition's Inaugural Golf Tournament at Franklin Country Club on Monday, August 22.

Both programs are geared at addressing some community needs and to continue our work to make the area a great place to live, work and raise a family.

Please pass along this email to any of your friends, family or neighbors and invite them to participate in these two remarkable programs.

Thank you for your continued support.

Thriving at College

Ok – you got in!  You have the dorm room, supplies and some new clothes. You'll be leaving pretty soon to take the next huge step in your life. For many teens, this is a time filled with excitement but also anxiousness and uncertainty, and certain skills need to be developed in order to overcome these fears and succeed that very first weekend and beyond.

Join us on Tuesday evenings, August 9th and August 16th, for two powerful workshops which will focus on solutions for some of the hurdles both teens and parents often face at the beginning of the college experience. The Thriving in College: Your First Weekend and Beyond workshop series is sponsored by the Hockomock Area YMCA Bernon Family Branch and Dean College, with support from State Representative Jeffrey Roy, the Franklin Public Schools, Community Impact, New Hope, Riverside Trauma Center and the S.A.F.E. Coalition.

Where:  Franklin High School

SAFE Golf Tournament

A "best ball" golf tournament to benefit the S.A.F.E. Coalition will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 22 at the Franklin Country Club.

The tournament will support the outreach programs of the S.A.F.E. Coalition in Franklin, Medway, Milford and surrounding communities in Norfolk and Worcester Counties. It will also include a barbecue lunch and awards.

Registration is now open at, and costs $150 per person and $600 for a foursome.

Ongoing S.A.F.E. programs include education, treatment options, and coping mechanisms for those affected by Substance Use Disorders. Our goals are to empower those affected, including their families, with the tools necessary to succeed on their journey to recovery.

Our Drop-In Centers provide a gateway to professional resources including medical and psychological needs, referrals to outpatient counseling, medical detoxification, in/outpatient rehabilitation programs and other treatment modalities including Healing Hearts, Learn to Cope and Community of Hope.

The Chiefs Roundtable provides a forum for interaction and support of our first responders while SOAR supports treatment for inmates and those involved in the judicial system.

Town Councilor Robert Dellorco, a member of the coalition, said the tournament is intended to help keep the group's "drop-in" centers - in which multiple services for addicts are brought under one roof - functioning.

"We had a grant but, in the future, we will need to fundraise," he said.

In addition to the tournament, the day will feature a barbecue lunch, a silent auction and awards, Dellorco said. And, SAFE is aggressively seeking sponsors for the new event.

"We have a lot of sponsors already, but we're looking to get as many sponsorships as we possibly can," he said.

Those interested in sponsoring the tournament may contact Dellorco at 774-571-5530. The S.A.F.E. Coalition of MA is a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization, and all contributions are tax deductible.

SAFE is also hoping as many golfers as possible register for the tournament. Dellorco said the group's target is 144 golfers, and it is looking to get the word out quickly, as the event is coming up soon.
