Red Ribbon Week planned
The Red Ribbon Week program is a national campaign to inform students of the dangers of drugs and encourage them to refrain from using illegal drugs all their lives.
By wearing a red ribbon during the last week in October, Americans demonstrate their opposition to drugs. They pay homage to all men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in support of our nation’s struggle against drug trafficking and abuse. Information is from www.imdrugfree.com
