BUCKHANNON — Buckhannon mayor Robbie Skinner welcomed local representatives of the Red Ribbon Campaign, which began in 1985 and has touched the lives of millions of people around the world, to city hall Thursday.
The Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. The National Family Partnership (NFP) and its network of individuals and organizations continue to deliver his message of hope to millions of people every year, through the National Red Ribbon Campaign.
Upshur County Schools counselors Suzanne Bohman, Carla McCoy, Larry Lance, Ashley Woody, Kirsten Coit-Fetty, Anthony McDaniels, Hope Hickman, Danielle Rexroad, as well as city recorder Randy Sanders, joined the mayor in council chambers Thursday.
The proclamation declares October 25-29, 2021 as Red Ribbon Week throughout Buckhannon and encourages its citizens to participate in drug prevention education activities, making a visible statement that we are strongly committed to a healthy, drug-free state.
