in Plain Sight" will be on display at Bay High School on Wednesday, October 1. Doors
open for browsing at 6:30 p.m., with a presentation beginning at 7 p.m. The
exhibit is open to adults only.
There is no charge for admittance.
The audience is encouraged
to explore and interact with items in the display which may be indicative
that a teenager is involved in substance abuse, underage drinking, eating
disorders, sexual activity and more. Participants will be enlightened,
educated and astonished.
