WHEREAS, Red Ribbon week is dedicated to Federal drug enforcement agent Enrique Camarena, who was killed by drug traffickers in Mexico in 1985. And,

WHEREAS, in response to his death, angered parents across the country began wearing Red Ribbons to symbolize their commitment toward the creation of a drug free America. And,

WHEREAS, in 1988, Congress officially proclaimed the first National Red Ribbon Week, October 23-31. The Red Ribbon has now become a symbol for the drug free movement. And,

WHEREAS, Red Ribbon Week is celebrated by over 100,000 schools and organizations nationwide, making it the most successful drug prevention event ever held.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Mayor Arnold M. Brawders, declare October 23-31 Red Ribbon Week in the City of Jefferson to help us make children aware that staying healthy and drug free is a positive choice they can make themselves. Plan now to have your children join millions of others across the country who say with pride: "The Choice for Me is Drug Free."
