Annual event highlights success of local community members

AUBURN, Calif. – You’re invited to witness how “Recovery Happens” on Saturday, Sept. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 123 Recreation Drive in Auburn.

This annual event celebrates substance use and mental health recovery, highlighting the success of local community members. Resources about treatment and recovery programs will be available.


In addition to informational booths, the event will also include a barbecue, music, games, prizes and more family-friendly activities.
