Why isnt Mark Mark invited to this affair? Or does he have a late night date in the State House?
Joseph Markman September 10, 2012 at 04:05 PM
Let's stay on topic, please.

So this is geared toward the adults, not the teens? or both? (target audience includes "residents" which is rather inclusive.)
Joseph Markman September 10, 2012 at 06:36 PM
I believe it is for adults and teens. The last couple substance abuse events I attended in Braintree had mostly adults in attendance, but teens and college-age people as well.
