    Come and Support Overdose Awareness Day with CARES & Safe Harbor, along with Easton Police Department and Phillipsburg Police Department. When communities come together we build a stronger foundation! Help end the stigma. If you’ve lost someone you love to addiction we will all walk to remember them. Phillipsburg will be meeting Easton on the free bridge and everyone will be given a flower to toss over the bridge for remembrance. Awards, free food, and live music will be held at Easton’s Scott Park.
