"Let's Talk" Month will encourage healthy communication between family members in a number of ways. 1000 "Let's Talk" boxes containing questions to help foster open discussion will be distributed at schools and local events. Additionally, yard signs displaying phrases such as, "Have you talked to your child today?" or "If not, who has?" will be posted around the community.

Residents can pick up their "Let's Talk Box" at Viking and Hunt Club Park Community Centers and any of District 50, 56 and 121 schools. You can also obtain daily "Let's Talk" questions by going to HCHY Gurnee-Warren Township Facebook or twitter page.
