Today, Mayor Goodlett and Judge Executive Orbrey Gritton made an official proclamation to raise awareness of the drug problem in our community and nation.  They made October 23rd through the 31st as Red Ribbon Week in the county and city to encourage citizens to wear red ribbons during that time to take a stand for drug abuse prevention and education.

The Red Ribbon Campaign is a national program founded by the National Family Partnership.  The Anderson County High School drug prevention coalition, Saving Our Students, and their advisor, Donna Crain Drury, organized the proclamation to continue their goal of a drug free county and nation.

In addition to wearing a red ribbon, the proclamation further encourages citizens to participate in drug abuse prevention and education during the week and throughout the year.  It also brings a strong commitment from the City of Lawrenceburg and Anderson County Government for drug prevention.
