Getting Ready For The New Year

In Local News on December 22, 2008 at 12:14 pm

Saturday, the Griffith Elementary SADD club helped me pass out can koozies at the Hatchet House with the Quitline phone number on them. We have some left over still and may pass them out again at another game.

I have also been spending time giving Quitline posters to area business from restaurants to factories to retail outlets. They have been very well received; only 1 or 2 places out of the about 75 I have visited in Washington have refused the posters. A few people have even commented that the Quitline is really needed or have told me about their companies’ smoke-free policies. I was really encouraged to learn today that Schwann’s will go to a smoke-free campus after the first of the year.

I have also been encouraging businesses and healtcare providers to sign resolutions supporting upcoming legislation for smoke-free workplaces, including restaurants, bars and casinos. Studies have shown that smoke-free legislation can actually improve business. It definitely saves money in healthcare, insurance and downtime.
