🚫🚫 Red Ribbon at Brewster Elementary 🚫🚫

We would like to thank Brewster Elementary for inviting us to their Red Ribbon Drive-Thru event. It was fun interacting with our kids, even if it was for a brief moment.

Red Ribbon Week was created in honor of DEA Special Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena. Camarena was brutally killed in 1985 by Mexican drug traffickers, who he was investigating. To honor him after his death people started wearing red ribbons.

We would like to remind children that drugs can be fatal. It is important that we take care of our bodies by eating right and exercising.

If you or a friend needs help, do not be afraid to reach out.
