WEEK 1: HEROES 4 HEALTH

El Campo and Louise Library Summer Programming
Location: Wharton County Library in El Campo and Louise
TX Drugs and Alcohol with our special guest from The El Campo Police Department and Wharton County Police Department: Officer Mark Biskup, Officer Beemer, and Officer Bill Holt

During our first week of Heroes 4 Health we were honored to have  3 guest speakers. The audience was really excited to see Officer Beemer (the K9 police dog)! Both officers gave a well received presentation about the risks and affects of indulging in drugs and alcohol. Even though Wharton County is a tight knit community, drug awareness is an important factor here. Officer Beemer gave us a show! He is very intelligent and trained to detect illegal substances. Every participant left with a drug free coloring page, sticker, pencil, and drug free pledge. Again, thank you officers!
