The Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Council of Orange County partnered with Pine Bush Central School District for Orange County’s Red Ribbon Week that kicked off on October 22, 2018 at Pine Bush High School.
Red Ribbon Week is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a drug free America.
This year’s theme was Life Is Your Journey. Travel Drug Free.
As this year’s host school, Pine Bush High School welcomed students from across Orange County where they engaged in activities that promote a drug free and healthy lifestyle.
