Young Lungs At Play
TFR is working to help Rowan County municipalities consider the adoption of tobacco-free ordinances and policies for their public parks, recreational facilities, governmental buildings and grounds. Healthy Communities funding has been utilized to create and purchase signs supporting tobacco-free living. The towns of East Spencer, Spencer, Rockwell and China Grove as well as the City of Salisbury have all joined in to create healthier life-spaces for their citizens.
