Many of the Kiwanis members had questions on our current school district tobacco policy in Bradford County, especially since one of the goals of the Kiwanis Clubs is to serve children in the local community. Quit Doc Research and Education Foundation, the Tobacco-Free Partnership of Bradford County, and the Tobacco Prevention Specialist of Bradford County look forward to partnering and working with the Kiwanis Club of Starke to impact our local youth and community.
