THIS YEAR’S NORTH TX OVERDOSE AWARENESS DAY HAS BEEN CANCELLED BECAUSE OF THE COVID PANDEMIC.
Instead, we will be displaying the “Time to Remember” wall (with pictures and names of those from our community lost to overdose) on the south lawn of the Denton Courthouse on the Square from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. We will have information and resources about overdose and free Narcan for anyone stopping by. At 12:00 noon, the First United Methodist Church of Denton will ring the church bells 8 times to symbolize that approximately every eight minutes someone dies from overdose each day in the U.S.
