International Overdose Awareness Day is coming up on August 31. The event seeks to create a better understanding of overdose, reduce the stigma of drug-related deaths, and create change that reduces the harms associated with drug use. Also, we remember those who have died or suffered permanent damage due to drug overdose.

A great friend of mine, Pat O’Hammy, and I are recording a new video series as part of my “Explore More” campaign. These videos will be to showcase what the area has to offer and, pretty much, we will be taking you with us as we travel around the areas that we play in on a daily basis. We will try to put out a video every month or so and have something for all the seasons we are lucky enough to be able to enjoy.

This is the first video we put together. It is a short video but gives you a look at what activities Broadford Lake Park has to offer. Let me know what you think and if this is something that would help people find places to go play!

Also, keep an eye on more on “Explore More”….. I’ll be sharing more about Broad Ford park this week but I also have a checklist of fun activities (for free).

Last, but not least on Explore More, you can also get your very own Explore More t-shirt in green, gray, mustard or lilac! Please note that, unfortunately, due to COVID limitations, I have a small inventory and cannot get certain sizes.
