Recovery rally moved to Zoom

The first annual recovery rally by the Kootenai Recovery Community Center that previously had been scheduled as an outdoor event on Saturday in Coeur d’Alene has been changed to a virtual event because of the rising number of COVID-19 cases.

The event, which had been scheduled at the 15th St. Pavilion, will now be changed to a Zoom meeting from 5-to-7:30 p.m. (Webinar ID: 854 4049 7069, passcode 721708).

“Within our organization, we don’t choose agenda over community … we will always align with the preservation of a safe space for everyone,” said Monica Forbes, CEO of Recovery United Inc. and founder of KRCC.
