Discussion slated in Medfield of underage drinking

MEDFIELD

A parents’ discussion of underage drinking issues in town will take place tonight at 7 p.m. in the high school library, 88R South St.

The meeting follows up on an underage drinking panel discussion in October and is an opportunity for parents to talk about the issue with each other.

Jan Tarlow, one of the organizers of tonight’s event and a member of the Medfield Youth Community Collaborative, said the meeting could lead to future events and the creation of committees that could focus on various steps to combat underage drinking, such as developing more youth activities in town or spreading information about substance abuse to other parents.

“It’s a new initiative in town and where it goes is going to depend on the people,” said Tarlow, the mother of two teenage high school students.
