Monarch will explain the well-known DARE campaign against drugs and the techniques used to convince children to avoid narcotics. Members of the general public--not just West Newport residents--are invited to attend.
A regular association-board meeting will follow.
The association meets at 7 p.m. in City Hall, 3300 Newport Blvd. Information: (714) 548-4560.
