Crestline Skatepark BBQ and Hangout 2!

Come on out to the second Crestline Skatepark BBQ and Hangout! 5pm today (Sept. 22nd) at the Crestline Skatepark on Lake Gregory Drive in Crestline, CA. It is completely free!

The Crestline Skatepark BBQ and Hangout event started as an idea by one of the Mountain High Community Care teen club members, who felt more teen oriented events and groups within our mountain communities would help prevent youth substance abuse. The club went further and sought the collaboration of Rim Family Services, the Rim Communities for Youth Coalition, the Lake Gregory Recreation Company, and many of the local mountain church youth groups to make the event a reality! The first event garnered 250 attendees and was a load of fun!

The sequel event is soon to commence so please come on out TODAY and have some fun!

September is National Suicide Prevention Month!

Even with friends and family around, someone experiencing emotional pain or suicidal thoughts can feel isolated. You may sense something is wrong, but not realize how serious it is. Trust your instincts. The warning signs – like withdrawal, depression or hopelessness – are there, but not always obvious. Visit suicideispreventable.org to learn the signs, find the words and reach out. You have the power to make a difference. The power to save a life.

A Town Hall Meeting featuring Ray Lozano!

Come on out to our last community night until fall!
Town Hall Flier - RC

Rim Communities for Youth and Rim Family Services would like to invite the entire community to attend a free event: A Town Hall Meeting featuring Ray Lozano! Come on out and hear a hilarious presentation raising awareness on the dangers of underage drinking. The event’s main presenter, Ray Lozano, is a wildly dynamic and entertaining speaker!
Since 1986, Ray Lozano has educated and entertained thousands of students in hundreds of middle schools and high schools from Alaska to Florida, and internationally in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda. Ray has a talent and gift for conveying what could be construed as boring drug and alcohol prevention information in such a fun and humorous way that his audiences come away informed and entertained. The best analogy would be giving your kids medicine in a spoon-full of sugar. There’s a good reason that Ray’s audiences feel like they just came back from the Improv rather than from a “lecture.” Ray has performed stand-up comedy at the Improv in Hollywood and Ontario, CA. It is his background in comedy that keeps his audiences coming back time and time again. The fact that he has been asked to return to many of the same schools across the nation, some for as long as 15 years, speaks to Ray’s ability to keep his information updated, fresh and relevant.
Alcohol is second most abused substance in our Rim Communities. The event takes place at Mary Putnam Henck Intermediate School (730 Rhine Rd Lake Arrowhead) on June 3rd at 6:30pm. There will be a free hot dog dinner and desserts!
