Open community forum on social issues in Granville

O n Nov.  4, at 6 p.m. in the Granville Jr./Sr. High Library, Michael Gray from the Washington County Youth Bureau and Alternative Sentencing will facilitate another community forum on the social issues facing our youth.

Working together as a community, the district is developing a plan to forge a path forward to combat issues such as drugs, alcohol, bullying and psychological problems.

Officials say social issues are a problem that touch everyone’s life in some way. They encourage everyone to attend the open forums and share ideas or listen to conversations about problems.

“Please don’t think that there isn’t anything you can do about these problems; together we can make a big difference in a child’s life,” officials said.
