Friday, Dec. 1st

It’s a “C-D” Day!

Welcome to Guest Staff: Mike Hambly, Kenneth Nicolle & Ashton Smallman

Highlights for Today:
• MADD Canada’s iconic red ribbon – symbolizing the innocent victims of impaired driving and the importance of always driving sober – turns 30 this year! For three decades, our Project Red Ribboncampaign has been raising awareness about the risks and consequences of impaired driving. While great strides have been made over the years to reduce impaired driving, it continues to be a deadly problem on Canada’s roads. Continued awareness efforts are vital. Our Project Red Ribbon campaign helps keep the sober driving message top of mind during the busy holiday season. With parties and celebrations plentiful, the risk for impaired driving is especially high. Our red ribbon is a small but powerful symbol of the wearer’s commitment to sober and undistracted driving. If you would like a ribbon to tie to your car (or binder), please see Mrs. Killeen in the library today!
