Project Zero Car Show

August 31, 2017

The Manalapan-Englishtown Community Alliance to Prevent Alcoholism and Drug Abuse is hosting it’s First Annual Project ZERO CAR SHOW on Thursday, August 31, 2017 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Manalapan Recreation Center.  The Alliance is coinciding the Car Show with the observation of the International Overdose Awareness Day.  In observance of the Awareness Day, the Alliance will present a short program and allow the community to meet together to remember the people we have lost to addiction.   The Alliance will have information about resources to help those still suffering addiction and other educational and informational resources focused on prevention.  There will be refreshments on site for purchase.

Local, state and national newspapers post daily, stories of drug arrests and responses to overdoses – with both successful and unsuccessful efforts of saving a person.  Additionally there are news stories of State and National efforts to address the over-prescribing of pain medicine.  The news seems endless and the ability for any one person to make a difference seems beyond reach.  The Manalapan-Englishtown Community Alliance to Prevent Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (“Alliance”) doesn’t want to give in to stagnation on this issue.  Instead, the Alliance wants to mobilize a community based effort to fight this scourge and empower the members of the community to be pre-emptive on this issue and employ strategies and efforts to prevent alcohol and drug abuse.

There is no cost to participate either as a Car Show participant or spectator.  Registration forms for Show participants are available on the Manalapan Township website – www.mtnj.org – or in the Manalapan Town Hall or by calling the Manalapan Health Department at 732-446-8345.  On-site registration will be accepted pending space starting at 5:00 pm.  All Car Show participants will receive a Certificate of Participation.

The Manalapan Recreation Center is on Freehold Road (Route 522) at the intersection with Taylors Mills Road.  Access to the park is either to the East or West of this intersection.

For more information, please feel free to call David Richardson, Health Officer, at (732) 446-8345 or health@mtnj.org.

The Manalapan-Englishtown Community Alliance to Prevent Alcoholism and Drug Abuse exists as a catalyst within our community to raise public awareness about alcohol and substance abuse issues.  The Alliance is a volunteer board comprised of community residents and representatives.  The Alliance meets monthly, routinely on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm at the Manalapan Senior Center.  For more information about the Alliance please contact David Richardson as noted above.
