    SPRINGFIELD — A community meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Riverside Middle School to discuss the recent drug raid in Springfield and surrounding towns.

    Representatives from Vermont State Police, the federal Drug Enforcement Agency, and communities who have had success responding to situations similar to Springfield, will be on hand, according to Wendi Germain, director of the Springfield Justice Center, one of the organizers of the forum.

    The discussion and planning session will be followed by a walk through town, according to Germain.

    “It’s time to come up with a plan and follow through on it. To do this we need to rally as a community,” she added.

    Germain said people can call her at 885-8707.
