Empowerment Over Addiction Can Start With ‘ENOUGH!’ Event on Nov. 16

By David Biggy | Nov 06, 2019

Stafford Township — Ken Rodenbaugh knows a lot about drug addiction, and when he speaks it’s from experience. Terminated from a previous job in 2013 for diversion of narcotics, Ken quickly entered rehab, and now works as a registered nurse at Southern Ocean Medical Center.

Several years ago, he launched an educational initiative called “Project Aware,” a dramatic presentation designed to educate sixth-graders about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.

On Saturday, Nov. 16, Rodenbaugh will be joined by professional results coach, educator and musician Charlie Mills to energize the community against addiction in the inaugural “ENOUGH!” empowerment event for middle- and high-school students. The free event begins at 7 p.m.; the doors at Stafford Township Arts Center in Manahawkin open at 6 p.m.

DJ Erin Constantine will provide entertainment, and parents are welcome to this family-fun event, at which there will be lots of free giveaways including Jetty T-shirts to the first 300 students and “Beats by Dre” headphones. For more information, email maohara1@comcast.net or call 609-618-8917. —D.B.
