Barry County Breathe Easy Coalition held its first Great American Smokeout on Thursday, Nov. 15.

This year, the theme for Barry County's Great American Smokeout was "Going Cold Turkey," and all participants were entered into a drawing for a Thanksgiving turkey or nicotine replacements.

Commitment stations were established at the Barry County Health Department, Cox Monett Hospital, Bruner Pharmacy and Old Town Pharmacy.

In Cassville, commitment stations were set up at the Barry County Health Department, Access Family Care Center, Sater Pharmacy and Mercy Hospital.
