Predators forum slated

On June 9, the Mont Vernon PTA will host a public forum entitled “Sexual Predators: What every parent should know,” at 7 p.m. at the Mont Vernon Village School.

The forum, which is open to residents of local communities including Mont Vernon, Amherst and Milford, is designed to educate parents about sexual predators who may exist both in their communities and on the Internet.

The panel will include Vicki Skotz, Director of Education for Bridges of Nashua, which offers support services for victims of domestic and sexual violence, Nicole Martini, program director for the Child Advocacy Center, Mont Vernon Police Chief Kyle Aspinwall and Amherst Middle School Student Resource Officer Knox.

The forum is free. For more information, contact Nancy Foster at 654-3271 or
