Join United Norconians for Life Over Alcohol and Drugs (UNLOAD) on Thursday, March 14, at its Town Hall Meeting entitled “A Step Ahead: Empowering Our Youth”! Both parents and students are encouraged to attend this family-oriented educational event, which will be held from 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Nellie Weaver Hall (3737 Crestview Drive in Norco).

UNLOAD is a committee of students, law enforcement personnel, Corona Norco Unified School District officials and City of Norco officials tasked with curbing drug and alcohol use in the community.
