Tobacco Free Park

This past summer, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the White Earth Reservation partnered with the White Earth Tobacco Coalition to make the city park in Mahnomen, MN smoke free. Club members utilize the park on a daily basis, which is located next to the Club. Representatives from the Club met with the Mahnomen City Council several times and educated the council and public on the dangers of second hand smoke. In August, the Mahnomen City Council voted to make the park smoke-free. A sign was placed in the park earlier this fall declaring the park “Tobacco-Free Grounds.” The Mahnomen Unit Club members give a BIG "Thumbs Up" in thanking the city council for their proactive approach to keeping kids safe.
