DECEMBER FAMILY UPDATE
Gaudet Giving Back!
Kids. We think they don't hear us, but they do. Take time this holiday season to remind your kids of the consequences of underage drinking.
Middletown's Social Host Ordinance: It’s all about the property the crime is committed on.
The primary purpose of the Middletown Social Host Ordinance is to deter underage drinking parties or gatherings where adults knowingly allow minors to drink alcohol, whether or not they provide it.
Some parents think allowing youth to drink at home is "safer," but hosting a holiday party with underage drinking is NOT "safer." It's Illegal.
It's important to know, the person in control of the property does not have to be present, does not have to be aware of the drinking, nor do they have to be an adult to break the ordinance.
For more information on Middletown's Social Host Ordinance visit Middletown Social Host Ordinance 130.01.
Protect yourself and your family this holiday season. Know the REAL risks and Think Before They Drink!
