Red Ribbon Week declared in Union County

October 26, 2021 12:05 a.m.
A proclamation for Red Ribbon Week was issued on behalf of County Judge Mike Loftin on Monday evening outside the Union County Courthouse. Members of the Young Artist Studio (YAS) and Harbor House Prevention Programs gathered to hear the proclamation and to take the drug-free pledge, promising to stay in school, make the world a better place, to help others and to stay drug-free. Mayor Veronica Smith-Creer was also on hand and spoke briefly in support of the event. The proclamation states in part that “the National Red Ribbon campaign offers citizens the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to drug-free lifestyles” and declares October 23 through 31 as Red Ribbon Week in the county.
