One year ago, Feather River College adopted a 100% smoke and tobacco-free policy with help from the Smoke Free High Country Project. Our project’s role is to educate the community and support tobacco prevention measures in Siskiyou, Lassen and Plumas Counties. The efforts made by the FRC Tobacco-Free workgroup which made up of a wide variety of the college’s stakeholders, student life and supported by California Health Collaborative’s Smoke Free High Country Project made this policy adoption possible. We continue to work with the college to implement the policy by educating campus visitors and address any issues.
To celebrate this accomplishment, Smoke Free High Country Project, in partnership with Feather River College will be hosting an event to congratulate being one year 100% smoke- and tobacco- free. This event will be held on Thursday, April 28, from 1pm-3pm on the green by the FRC baseball field and is open to the public. This event will have quit resources and guides for those in need and fun lawn games for all. After working up an appetite from playing cornhole, ladder ball and more, free lunch will be available for students provided by FRC. During the event you can take a break and head to the selfie station that will have fun props you can use to strike your best pose in front of the congratulations on being one-year smoke and tobacco-free backdrop. We use this day to celebrate the milestone that was made a year ago and we hope to see you there!
