Frostburg Community Coalition Seeks Pledges From Parents
- At the December basketball game between Mountain Ridge and Fort Hill high schools, members of the Frostburg Community Coalition collected 188 cards signed by adults pledging not to provide alcohol to underage youth, as part of the Coalition’s “Parents Who Host Lose the Most” program. Janet Phillips of Ellerslie, center, whose name was drawn from the pledges for a gift basket, is shown with Mountain Ridge Principal Gene Morgan and Lyndsey Baker, coalition coordinator. The Coalition will be seeking pledges at Mountain Ridge basketball games throughout the season. The Frostburg Community Coalition’s activities are funded by the Maryland Strategic Prevention Framework Grant awarded through the Allegany County Health Department. The coalition is working on prevention strategies in four areas: social availability of alcohol in non-retail settings; retail availability, especially in terms of preventing alcohol sales to those under 21; enforcement and adjudication for those who violate alcoholic beverage laws; and social and community norms to address attitudes toward high-risk drinking.
