MH Rotary Club begins ‘Don’t Meth With Me’ program

The Rotary Club of Mountain Home recently began a new program with area fifth-graders called "Don't Meth with Me". Rotarians presented two sessions at Hackler Elementary School about the dangers of this created drug, which uses such ingredients as acetone, furniture refinisher and stripper, ammonia, propane and Drano. Students were shown the long-term impact of the easily recognizable "Meth Mouth" including damaged gums and lips, plus complete deterioration of the teeth.Rotarians also regularly present the "Choices" program for local eighth-grade students about their future plans and provide personal dictionaries to third-graders in four school districts.

Pictured are Rotarians who taught the sessions on Meth: (front l-r) MH Superintendent & Rotarian Jake Long, Rotary club president Jewel Pendergrass, members Scott Tabor, Heather Hendricks and program coordinator Stewart Rogers, (back l-r) Sally Gilbert, Bill Brown, and John Schaub.
