COLLEGE & CAREER NIGHT 2016:
Wednesday, November 2, 2016 from 6:00-8:00 pm - Just a reminder to mark your calendars and come join us at Freeman High School for Henrico County's College & Career Night! There will be over 120 colleges, community colleges, vocational schools, military, and more! It will be an exciting evening for students to get to meet college representatives from all over.
There’s a time-saving feature for this year’s event: pre-registration barcodes. In past years, aisles could sometimes get overcrowded with students and parents filling out information cards to leave with colleges. Students are being asked to fill out a brief questionnaire ahead of the event at www.gotocollegefairs.com (Click on Students Register Now) to receive a personal barcode. When they find colleges at the event that pique their interest, students can quickly transfer their contact information by having a personal barcode scanned. We hope to see you there!

Parent Information: Drug Use warning Signs
Soon our students will be out of school with idle time on their hands. If parents are working, children - young and old - spend more time unsupervised, looking for something to do, right or wrong. Now is the time to get unneeded and unused medications out of your house and out of your medicine cabinet. Anyone who reads the paper, follows the news online or watches news on TV knows what a problem prescription drug abuse is and how it can be a gateway to heroin and other drugs. We are losing far too many young people to this horrible epidemic.
Given this situation, Bremo Pharmacy is doing its part to get unneeded or unused medications out of people's homes and medicine cabinets. As a service to the community, we have installed a permanent Drug Take back box in our pharmacy at 2024 Staples Mill Road.
You need not wait for the once a year Drug Take back day. Our Drug Take back box is available for the public's use anytime our pharmacy is open: Monday - Friday 9:00am - 6:00pm and Saturday 9:00am - 1:00pm. There is no charge, there is no catch - it is truly a community service to get unneeded and unused medications out of our home and out of the hands of our children - young and old.
