COCOAA and Farnham Collaborate to Provide Training to Holy Trinity Parishioners in Fulton
With Spring and Summer just around the corner, Holy Trinity Parish is thinking “Festival Time.” The County of Oswego Council on Alcoholism and Addictions, Inc. and Farnham Family Services recently collaborated to bring a concessions TIPS (Training for Intervention Procedures) workshop to several Holy Trinity Parishioners. This training was made possible through the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) grant that was received through COCOAA.
Certified TIPS trainer, Karen Hoffman, Prevention Director at Farnham Family Services conducted this training, organized through the Prevention Department at COCOAA.
TIPS trainings are an important component of a community’s comprehensive strategy to reduce the risk of problems associated with alcohol outlets. The trainings focus on attitudes, knowledge, skills and practices of persons involved in selling or serving alcoholic beverages. The primary goal is to prevent sales of alcoholic beverages to underage and intoxicated patrons and reduce the risks of intoxication occurring on the premises.
All persons who attended the TIPS concessions training at Holy Trinity Parish received certification.
The Holy Trinity Parish Festival is a community outreach program that will be held at the Parish from July 8-10, 2011. The public is welcome to attend and they can enjoy free entertainment, food including a chicken dinner and a Sunday morning breakfast, games and an overall good time.
For more information about the Festival, please contact the Holy Trinity Parish at 598-2118.
