Skating away from drugs

January 17, 2005

Albany - The Stardust skating rink, along with the Albany Police Department and Dougherty County Sheriff's Office hosted the 15th annual "Just say no to drugs" skate.

The skate is to show kids there are fun alternatives to drugs and gang related activities. Albany Police Lt. Darryl Kennedy says, "It's important to have things like this, to let the public know that we need to support our drug free programs, our drug education programs and our gang resistance programs because it is a problem in our community."

One third of all of the proceeds from Monday's skate will go to the D.A.R.E. and G.R.E.A.T. programs within Dougherty county schools.
