CEASe of Scott County (Coalition to Eliminate the Abuse of Substances) would like to invite all of Scott County and surrounding counties to their next Community Forum: “Medora: One Town’s Fight to Survive” featuring the film’s director, Andrew Cohn and stars from the film on Thursday, February 6, 7 p.m., at the the Mid-America Science Park, 821 South Lake Road in Scottsburg.
