It's Just Smart Not To Start
The Rotary Club of Mitchell, through the leadership of Rotarian Doug Bielek, began implementation of the “Don’t Meth with Us” program in Ontario in 2011. The program has been modelled after the very successful program initiated in 2006 by the Rotary Club of San Juan, New Mexico.
The “Don’t Meth With Us” program will be delivered to 1400 grade five students in the Avon Maitland District School Board and the Huron-Perth Catholic School Board during the 2011-12 school year.
The presentations will be delivered by Rotarians and their friends at approximately 60 schools in this inaugural year and will be delivered each year to every grade 5 class in Huron and Perth counties.
Implementing this program has been made easy with the great cooperation experienced from Police Forces, School Boards, Municipal leaders, Service clubs, community minded businesses and Rotarians.
