As we approach prom and graduation season, it is important for parents to be informed about underage drinking in our community. Our panel of experts including local area judges, school personnel, and students will provide advice about how to talk to your kids about underage drinking, how to be an influencer in your child's life, and give tools and techniques for how to support your child in their efforts to make wise, healthy choices.

Our panel will include:
- The Honorable Samuel J. Betar
- The Honorable Jill C. Marisie
