Several members of the TDIP "Drug Court" Program worked for hours on Saturday to decorate the Veteran's park for the upcoming Veteran's Day service on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m.

The participants gave their time in service to the local Vets "because they wanted the opportunity to give back" to a community some felt they had hurt while they were using.

Part of the Drug Court Program's criteria is making amends; honesty, and giving back.

The Drug Court Coordinator supervises community service by the participants if at all possible.

If you have a community project in your future please contact Regina Roberts, Coordinator for the Drug Court Program at 770-749=6797 or Samantha Johnson (Judge Lim's Assistant) at 770-748-6790.

Our participants are required by contract to work; so the program works around their employment hours.

The Tallapoosa Circuit Drug Court began on Feb. 10, 2004. The current Drug Court Judge is Judge Meng Lim.
