The Kandiyohi County Drug Free Communities (DFC) Coalition is conducting a parent survey.  We are gathering parents’ opinions on alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and prescription (Rx) drugs through an online survey.  Please complete this 21 question survey if you are a parent of a Kandiyohi County K-12 student AND live in Kandiyohi County.  Please take this survey only once. Thank you if you have already taken the survey! This survey will be open until July 19, 2013, so you have until Friday to participate.  Please feel free to forward this email to any parent who you think would take this survey.  All answers are anonymous.  Please click on the appropriate language link below:

The DFC Coalition will be looking at the results of this survey to assist in our strategic plan for the next few years in reducing substance abuse in Kandiyohi County and what messages we will formulate and who will be receiving those messages.  Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  Our coalition truly appreciate your participation!

    Are all parks in Kandiyohi County Tobacco free?

    • Hello Dr. Dean Lovold,
      All Kandiyohi County Park Beaches are now tobacco free. This means all the sand area of a beach is tobacco free. In other areas of the park, people may use tobacco. We ask tobacco users to be considerant of the environment and dispose of their used chew and cigarette butts appropriately. We also know that children look to older adults as role models and in order to decrease the amount of youth who become smokers, we ask that tobacco users remove themselves from an area where children are present and use that tobacco away from them. We need to shield our children from tobacco use because studies have shown, the less children see tobacco use, the less likely they are to use tobacco. The Kandiyohi County Drug Free Communities Coalition is committed to reducing underage drinking, tobacco use and other illegal drug use in our communtiy and this is just one of the ways in which we can achieve this.
      Thank you for your inquiry and should you have any further questions, please contact me at
