The Edmonson County Anti-Drug Coalition and EC ASAP Organization met last week in Brownsville to discuss continuing the fight on drugs and furthering other youth programs for EC. In case you're not familiar with the organization, it's made up of local law enforcement, State Police, Education Administrators, Youth Service Center reps, Lifeskills reps, as well as other county officials and employees.
The group gave reports on the various events they had recently sponsored, the largest being the annual "Cram the Cruiser." The event is a partnership with Commonwealth Broadcasting's "Stuff The Bus," hosted by the Tony Rose, of the Tony Rose Morning Show. The group, headed up by the State Police, holds a school supply drive for Edmonson County where donations are placed inside a KSP police cruiser. Supplies are then donated to Stuff the Bus, while keeping enough to last EC schools all year.
There was also a report given on the annual "Back To School Bash," which was the biggest success yet, drawing over 200 students at the event. The group also discussed upcoming programs and events for the fall. Some include an anti-texting and driving program, an event to discard expired prescription drugs, and several school related events that aid in anti-bullying, peer pressures, and youth driver safety programs.
