How to reduce underage use of alcohol was the topic of a town hall meeting in Maryville last night.
The event was sponsored by Maryville Partners in Prevention, a coalition of substance abuse and wellness personnel from Northwest Missouri State University.
Representatives from the Maryville City Council, Public Safety and Chamber of Commerce were in attendance.
Strategy Team Leader for Community Engagement with Maryville Partners in Prevention, Becca Maier, says one of the main themes coming from last night's event was the need for improved education in the community on problems stemming from underage drinking.
Maier says a goal of the organization is to get more community involvement in how to prevent underage drinking.
Maryville Partners in Prevention is a part of statewide coalition of 21 colleges and universities.
The local organization meets the second Wednesday of every month.
