“What Does Stoughton Mean to Me?” – Stoughtonians share what Stoughton means to them in this short video. We are interested in hearing what Stoughton means to YOU. Contribute your thoughts, images, videos, ideas and enthusiasm for your home and we will share them with the community. You can reach us through Facebook (We Are U-Knighted), twitter (weruknighted), instragram (weruknighted), email (email@example.com) and watch for easels in public places in town to add your comments the old fashioned way.
So, You may be wondering “what does this project have to do with substance abuse prevention?” The answer is EVERYTHING. Connecting to everything that is positive in Stoughton is the foundation for our prevention work. The truth is that we have been speaking this language in our coalition for a long time, but we are overdue in having this conversation with the whole community. Think of this as the coalition taking you into the basement and showing you our old fieldstone rock foundation. It is strong and it is what holds us up. So please join us in this conversation. Special thanks to SMAC and Jeff Pickette for the production of this video!
