Luncheon to offer info on drug trends

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

On Thursday, local community members will have the opportunity to learn about local illegal drug trends at the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce's first quarterly luncheon of 2012. The event, which will feature Southwest Missouri Drug Task Force Agent John Luckey, will be held at the Barry County Museum at noon.

"The chamber is excited to have Agent Luckey as our guest speaker," said Mindi Artherton, chamber executive director. "Everyone in attendance is sure to learn something about some of the issues our region is facing."

Luckey has 17 years of law enforcement and has served as a drug task force again since 2007. He currently serves as the officer in charge of the Southwest Missouri Drug Task Force, which covers Barry, McDonald and Lawrence counties.

In addition to learning about drug trends, attendees will have the opportunity to network with other professionals from the local community during the event.

The Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce's "The Chamber: Today and Beyond" program is designed to showcase contributions made to the local community by area businesses, industries and organizations.

Community members who attend the luncheon will enjoy a meal catered by Papa Vito's. The quarterly luncheon event will cost $8 per person.

To register for the event, call Artherton at 847-2814 or email her at
