ALBANY, GA (WALB) –For the 25th year the Stardust Skate Center hosted a fun way to teach kids to stay away from drugs.

The Dougherty and Lee County Sheriff's Offices helped put on the "Just say no to drugs skate."

Deputies from both counties displayed drug paraphernalia, and talked with kids about the dangers of drugs and how not to fall victim.

Dougherty County Sheriff's Office Lt. Terron Hayes said  "We try and show them the positive side of saying no. And how they can further grown and mature throughout life without being on drugs."

The Stardust Skate Center donates a portion of the money they make in the say no to drugs skate to the Sheriff's Offices who use it to buy education tools for kids for their anti-drug programs.
