The first Anti-Drug Youth Conference was held April 3 at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. Sponsored by Kent Sussex Community Services, with assistance from Rehoboth Chief of Police Keith Banks and Mt. Enon Church in Milford, the event brought in students from throughout Sussex and Kent counties to learn about the dangers of drugs in an interactive way.
