BREAK THE STIGMA!

 Join us for our second annual Break the Stigma Addiction Awareness Walk as we gather together to break the stigma that surrounds addiction and recovery.

Our Mission Statement:

Take a moment to really think about it...has your life been affected in any way by addiction? Whether it is you, a family member, significant other, friend, son or daughter, almost everyone's lives have been impacted in some way. The mission of "Break the Stigma" is to raise awareness by promoting transparency among individuals impacted by substance use disorder. Beginning right here within our own community and through the sharing of our own experiences, we hope to offer strength, wisdom, encouragement, support, guidance and resources to lay the foundation in promoting healthy coping strategies for all individuals, no matter how affected.

The Walk will start at Stanley Deming park and registration will open at 11am with the Walk kicking off at 12noon. As the walk ceases back at the park hear from speakers on the topics of stigma and hope. Enjoy performances from local bands and artists. Food will be served, and we will also be having our corn hole tournament again.

Sponsorship options are available for businesses and individuals who would like to honor a loved one. All donations and proceeds will be donated to the Warwick Valley Prevention Coalition.

Respect peoples choices this summer please. If you're out at a BBQ or at the lake and you offer someone a drink and they say "No, Thank you." Respect that! Too many times have I been asked "Why not?!" and told "Ah come on its just one!" You never know the severity of what someone is going through.

That moment still gives me chills! Who’s excited to hear more from SC Static at this years walk!?

Acting Out Playhouse

   The Acting Out Playhouse began 14 summers ago when its founder, award-winning director and choreographer, Terry Odell, heard a call to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina.  She started a program called CPR, Children Performing for Relief, to raise money for the families victimized by the horrible disaster.  They worked hard, produced and performed several concerts in Orange County, NY that raised over $2500 for students in New Orleans.  During the project, it became clear that the positive affect on the children involved here was immeasurable.  Life skills were built, empathy and teamwork taught, a sense of pride in accomplishment and purpose.  At that moment, Terry saw the importance of dedicating her professional life to the opening of an official theater group for children that would be built on those very principals, and The Acting Out Playhouse was born. The Playhouse is now an important learning and social community for over 150 Orange County children.  We have produced over 30 full-scale productions, performing them on small Black Box stages as well as on some of the largest venues in the area, such as the Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center. Money has been raised for local and national charities and performed for schools, senior centers and local fairs.
