On September 7, Lindsborg Mayor Judy Neuschafer proclaimed that the month of September 2010 will be “National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month.” Throughout the month, members of the Bethany and Lindsborg communities are encouraged to be educated about recovery from substance use disorders.

A final celebration will occur on September 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Non-Alcoholic Beverage House (211 E. Normal). The event will include a picnic, live music and giveaways. This event is free and open to the public.
