Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country.  It serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal committment to live drug free lives with the ultimate goal being the creation of a drug free America.  Red Ribbon Week commemorates the ultimate sacrifice made by DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who died at the hands of drug traffickers in Mexico while fighting the battle against illegal drugs to keep our country and children safe.  http://redribbon.org/

Great American Smoke-Out Information Table

Thursday, November 20, 2014, PAC Concourse

11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Every year, on the third Thursday of November, smokers across the nation take part in the American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout. They may use the date to make a plan to quit, or plan in advance and then quit smoking that day. The Great American Smokeout challenges people to stop using tobacco and helps people know about the many tools they can use to quit.

In many towns and communities, local volunteers use this day to publicize the need to quit, and press for laws that control tobacco use and discourage teens from starting, and support people who want to quit.     http://www.cancer.org/healthy/stayawayfromtobacco/greatamericansmokeout/index
