No Drinking this Weekend

ALCOHOL AWARENSSYou shouldn’t have to depend on alcohol to have fun.

That’s the message being spread this weekend during the annual Alcohol–Free Weekend in Kansas.

Smoky Hill Foundation Executive Director Jodi Sproul explains the event is part of April’s National Alcohol Awareness Month.

“Parents and other adults are encouraged to abstain from drinking for a 72-hour period to show minors that alcohol isn’t necessary for having a good time, ” she says.   “This is the perfect time for parents or caregivers to teach their children about responsible drinking.”

Statistics show alcohol is the number one drug choice among Kansans, according to Sproul,  and the consequences can be devastating for families and communities alike.

If you or somebody you know struggles with alcohol abuse, contact the Smoky Hill Foundation for Chemical Dependency at (785) 625-5521

    Jodi is the most amazingly smart and beautiful woman I have had the chance to work with. Call me unamerican but it wouldn’t bit bother me one bit if restriction were placed on how much alcohol you can by. I would also like to see the drinking age raised to 25 but that is just a scientific based opinion. Stay safe this weekend everyone. Wu-shock!

      Can you show me the science behind your “scientific based” opinion?

    • aaa

      Having a dringing age just promotes drinking for the underage. Having a limit just promotes going over. You learnef nothing in high school.
