Families Against Narcotics (FAN) of Chippewa County to host the sixth annual Community Awareness Night Oct. 23, the evening prior to Chippewa County Health Department’s Fall Summit at LSSU. FAN will present Amy Buchanan, a former school administrator, who will speak about her experience with severe Substance Use Disorder. Amy now devotes her time to bringing awareness to what exactly substance use disorder is, helping end the stigma of addiction with her personal story, a true real time nightmare until she was able to get help.

FAN will also have Narcan kits for those willing to do a brief training with Safe Exchange coordinator Mary Miller.

If you know anyone who is affected in some way by SUD in their own lives or that of a friend or loved one, please share information about this event.

There is no cost to attend. Refreshments provided.

Come have some fun and celebrate those in Recovery and everyone working so hard to help make recovery a reality for more and more families in our area. Helping one individual find recovery often means helping the lives of five to 10 other people who will also be positively impacted by that person’s wellbeing.

This year’s annual Hogs for Hope fundraiser for Families Against Narcotics (FAN) of Chippewa County will take place Oct.19, 1-7 p.m., at the Sault National Guard Armory.  There will be kids’ games, a bake sale, a silent auction, a 50-50 draw, live music and all kinds of good food—pulled pork, baked beans, coleslaw, pasta salad and chips.

We are advertising “take out” orders as well this year, realizing that there are a lot of workers who won’t be able to leave work to get their lunches/dinners. We will do what we can to get those orders to them at no extra charge.

Tickets for the event are $10 each and can be bought in advance or at the door. Children 6 and under eat free. Those interested in purchasing tickets in advance can message FAN on our FB page at www.facebook.com/FANChipp/or call 906‑635‑1047.

We are so thankful for all the volunteers who are working to make this event possible, not to mention the many generous sponsors and those donating incredible silent auction items. We are amazed each year by their willingness to acknowledge the importance of HOPE in the lives of those who are affected by Substance Use Disorder. We are hopeful that the general community will also once again come help us celebrate with an afternoon of fun and great food. There is HOPE. There is RECOVERY. Come show your support!
