Share your favorite dinner memories and stories;
Win Stouffer’s Coupons!
Remember sitting around the dinner table, sharing stories, meals and laughs? Communities That Care of Lorain County, a countywide coalition working to prevent and reduce underage substance abuse, wants to hear your best family memories: the fun, the laughter, even the bittersweet memories. We’ll be awarding coupons for Stouffer’s Easy Express Skillets Meals and Stouffer’s Family Size Meals to the best of the best.
First off, celebrate. The coalition is reminding you to sit down to dinner on Monday, Sept. 27, and celebrate Family Day: A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children. Remember: the more often you have dinner with your kids, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use drugs.
At the dinner table you can check in with everyone on how they’re doing. It’s a great place to get conversations started. You can use the time to share family meals and memories and it doesn’t have to cost a lot. Just your time – which we know is precious, but what better way to spend it than with your family?
Stouffer’s is a co-sponsor of the national Family Day campaign and the Solon-based company has generously donated coupons for our story contest. So get ready to share:
Entries should be made in the following categories:
• Best Family Day Memory
• Best Family Dinner/Meal
• Most Creative Way to Get Your Family Together
Keep the stories short (no more than 250 words), so we can reprint some of the winners on our coalition’s website. (www.ctcloraincounty.org)
Send entries to Catherine Gabe at firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail: Catherine Gabe, Lorain ADAS Board, 4950 Oberlin Ave., Lorain, OH 44053. Stories must be received by Oct. 8. Please make sure you have all your contact information included, so we can reach the winners for their coupons.
Now, go forth and eat dinner together!
