Kick Butts Clean Up Day!
What a great day we had cleaning up our baseball fields on May 18th! Not only did Parent and Kid Corps members participate, but Melissa Craig, after-school coordinator, arranged to have the after-school children participate as well. We had 30 children and seven adults helping to clean up litter and tobacco trash. Within 30 minutes, we were able to pick up a pretzel jar full of butts and one "skoal" can. We got great publicity as there was article published in the Monroe Enquirer Journal and in The County Edge. Kim Bayas, tobacco prevention specialist with Union County Public Schools, was present and helped to educate the children about the dangers of secondhand smoke and tobacco use. The day was planned to draw attention to our "tobacco free schools." For more information on issues discussed, download the following file:Download file
