Better Brodhead was invited to have a display during the November Parent Teacher conferences at Brodhead Middle School. Around 35 parents and students stopped by our display. The vape cart displays the dangers of the chemicals in a vape. The meth display is meant to educate the community on the dangers of the “one-pot method” of manufacturing meth amphetamines. Thank you Brodhead Middle School for your continued support and partnership!
