Sheila Hasenkamp to give free community presentation
United 4 Youth Countywide will be hosting a free to the public community presentation featuring Sheila Hasenkamp of Aurora, Neb., formerly of Hiawatha.
Hasenkamp will give her presentation entitled, “8 Minutes,” in which she will share the story of the night her son Parker suffered alcohol poisoning. It occurred during spring break in March 2016 – when he was planning on celebrating his 20th birthday – in Havasu City, Ariz. While Parker’s story almost ended in tragedy, he received a second chance at life.
The Hasenkamps feel compelled to share their story, details of that day and the days following, to the public in hopes of preventing this from happening to others.
“We seem to be hearing more and more stories of young people dying due to alcohol poisoning and it is our hope that through ‘our story’ we will be able to save a life,” S. Hasenkamp said.
The presentation will take place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Sabetha High School Gym.
