Red Ribbon Week ended with the sound of laughter, as the students engaged in fun activities meant to educate them. Student Council sponsored an assembly for high school students on Thursday, Oct. 20. Three stations were located around the school, each giving different examples and explanations about negatives of alcohol. One was about driving under the influence of alcohol, another about the conditions of the body with alcohol, and the last had goggles to show them how being impaired by alcohol can affect you.

“Be safe,” Student Council sponsor Dick Dugan said. “Every choice you make has a consequence.”
