Wow! SRSLY Manchester volunteers have given 3037 hours of their time to help prevent youth substance use! This includes 53 adults and 179 youth!
Volunteers have given their time to meetings, grant writing and review, fun family friendly events like the Haunted High School and Variety Show, Project Sticker Shock, Public Service Announcements, Conferences, and disseminating information around the community.

Math & Science Night has come and gone. As always SRSLY Manchester has thoroughly enjoyed their time at Math & Science Night and are blown away by all the smart youth that come by our room.
We had the wonderful Alison Cox the Manchester's Designated Youth Tobacco Representative show up with her gloriously gross pig lungs and educated us all on the dangers of tobacco use.
Mya Enzer, one of SRSLY Manchester's 7th grade members taught Manchester's youth about medicine safety and the importance of disposing of medication properly.
We also celebrated the success of Manchester's very own Red Barrel program by having a guess contest. Manchester youth guessed how many pounds of medication they thought our Red Barrel had collected and disposed of since it first opened. Out of the almost thirty entries one lucky winner received a $10 iTunes Gift Card! The answer?.... 273 POUNDS!!!!
The 16th Annual Variety Show has come to a close today. This year could not have gone better. We had 20 amazing acts. Each year the talent out of Manchester blows me away. If you didn't get a chance to see what our middle schoolers had to offer, NO SWEAT, check out the YouTube Video below.
There are a number of people and organizations we want to thank. First a huge thank you to the SRSLY Manchester youth volunteers who comprosed the Stage Crew! They were the backbone of the show and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without them. A super special special thank you to our Stage Manager Jacob Mann (8th grade) for whipping everyone into shape, including Ms. Hannah! Jacob has a talent for leadership that’s for sure. Another gigantic thank you to our adult volunteers, including Mr. Betz, who taught us a lot about stage crew, performing, and being an Emcee. Also, thank you Small Town Sounds and specifically Andy Galicki for making the show come to life with grade A equipment and direction for performers!
We would also like to thank Manchester’s Civic Club, AND the local and state Lions Club for their donations! We wouldn’t be able to do these type of events without the support of our community groups.
AND lastly thank you to everyone who came out and watched our show!
