The Morris Area Coalition for Education and Positive Choices is proud to announce their biggest night ever. As part of their ongoing initiative to provide youth with supervised positive activity, the Coalition continually accentuates the fact that a great time can be had without the introduction of drugs and alcohol.  Keeping kids involved is very important and the Coalition is constantly busy planning chaperoned events to keep them occupied in a fun atmosphere.

The Coalition is sponsoring this event in conjunction with the Hanover Township Substance Awareness Council, Hanover Township Police Department, Hanover Twp. Parks & Recreation, Whippany & Cedar Knolls Fire Departments, Morris County Sheriff’s Department and law enforcement agencies, Parsippany Rescue & Recovery, Knights of Columbus, Hanover Scouts, Hanover Tiger Football & Cheerleaders, American Martial Arts, Sharon’s School of Dance, Cheer Pride, Legacy Gym, Party Pleasing Rental, Retro Fitness, Wegman’s and many more local businesses. 

Free food, volleyball, music and fun are among the night’s events. The height of the evening will by the annual “tug of war” between fire departments.  The “Big Night Out” is free of charge and open to all Morris area residents.  Please come out and support the efforts of the Coalition to inspire young people to make positive decisions to stay healthy and avoid drugs and alcohol.  Engaging with kids and providing families with education, support, guidance and resources has been the Coalition’s purpose in helping address the problem of substance abuse.
