The 40 enthusiastic attendees were entertained by the sweet sounds of the Angele Band. Guests noshed on hors d’oeuvres, and sipped icy beverages while waiting their turn for some salon pampering. They were treated to haircuts, highlights, chair massages and tinsel tying with the estimated proceeds of more than $800 all going to support Tahoe Truckee Future Without Drug Dependence (TT-FWDD).

Volunteers needed for Community Drug Take-back Day

The Tahoe Truckee Future Without Drug Dependence (TT-FWDD) Coalition is looking for community volunteers who would like to help with an Rx Drug Take-back Event scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 29, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in Truckee and Tahoe City.

The Rx Drug Take-back event is designed to provide the community with a safe, convenient, and free method to drop off unused, expired, or unwanted medications. At previous take-back events, Tahoe-Truckee has collected and disposed of more than 500 pounds of prescription medications, helping to prevent youth drug abuse and the contamination of our waterways.

If interested in volunteering at this event, learning more about it or the TT-FWDD Coalition; please contact 530-546-1924, FWDD@ttcf.net, http://www.ttfwdd.com.
