Red Ribbon Week

RAYMOND —The Raymond Coalition for Youth is encouraging the community to once again come together to promote healthy, drug-free living by helping us to promote and celebrate Red Ribbon Week (October 23-31).

Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of Americans during the last week of October every year. By wearing red ribbons and participating in Community anti‐drug events, young people pledge to live a drug‐free life and pay tribute to DEA Special Agent Enriqué “Kiki” Camarena.  Agent Camarena dedicated his life to fighting the war on drugs and on February 7, 1985 he was kidnapped and murdered by the Mexican Drug Cartel.  His death is a reminder of how important the war on drugs is and just how dangerous they can be. 

Everyone who supports a Drug Free Lifestyle can show their support to youth and the community as a whole by wearing RED, displaying Red Ribbons at their home or Business or by displaying this printable 8x 10 Poster in the window of their business, class room, office or home on the refrigerator. 

RCFY has engaged with the community and there are several locations such as the town hall, our schools, the library and the Rec. Department that you can pick up stickers to show your support.

Our schools will also be passing out ribbons, bookmarks, bracelets and planting tulip bulbs that will become beautiful flowers in April – which just happens to be Alcohol Awareness month.

Want to join us and go viral?  No, you will not become sick but you will help us spread the word about Red Ribbon Week and the importance of spreading awareness through conversation and outreach.  Take a picture in your red, decorate you house or mailbox with Red ribbons, get creative and post it on our Facebook page for everyone to see – Raymond Coalition for Youth

Raymond is a wonderful community to live in and supporting our youth is something everyone can do to make a difference in their future.

To learn more about the Raymond Coalition for Youth and all of our efforts to involved youth and adults of all ages and talents check out our website at www.rcfy.org or our facebook page.

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
