(SEDALIA, MISSOURI) : Mayor Bob Wasson issued a proclamation today designating October 15-22, 2007 as Red Ribbon Week in Sedalia. 

Text of Proclamation

"WHEREAS, S.T.A.N.D., a not-for-profit organization of concerned citizens dedicated to the creation and support of philosophies, strategies, and activities that promote safe and drug-free, healthy lifestyles, will take the lead in the celebration of Red Ribbon Week in our community; and

WHEREAS, S.T.A.N.D. works directly with the school system and the community in providing in-service programs, curriculum materials, drug-free activities for students, parent education, and community awareness campaigns; and

WHEREAS, Since 1988 the red ribbon has become the united symbol to eliminate the demand for drugs and to show a nation’s intolerance to an America where alcohol and drugs erode the potential of its youth and destroy the quality of life in its communities; and

WHEREAS, It is the goal of the 2007 Red Ribbon Celebration to encourage healthy, drug-free and violence-free lifestyles among youth.

NOW THEREFORE, I, BOB WASSON, MAYOR OF THE CITY OF SEDALIA, MISSOURI, do proclaim the week of October 15-21 as RED RIBBON WEEK 2007 and urge all residents to unite in support of this effort to make a positive difference in our community."
