On 8/31/22, we will have tables at 5 locations (FARM Cafe, Lily’s Snack Bar, Hatchet Coffee, ReGear, and the Boone mall) to offer Narcan training and resources including Narcan and fentanyl test strips. (Times will be advertised and will be posted in the public “End Overdose in Watauga County” group on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/365204995689397)

At 7:00 pm on 8/31/22, we will gather at the green space and parking area of Poplar Grove Connector (in front of Daymark Recovery Services, Watauga County Health Department, DSS, and the Senior Center) to open an interactive art installation that will remain until 9/30/22 (when we will gather again for a closing event) and to honor together lives lost to overdose. We will end the event that evening with a candlelight vigil walk.

The overdose epidemic is everyone's problem, but it's being left to a small group to step up.
