WORDS UNDER ♥ ARE DROP-DOWN MENUS!

IN THE LOOP / OCTOBER

DO YOU KNOW:
IDIPIC’s Th!nk, Don’t Drink or Drug presentation will be returning to all public middle schools on Whidbey this fall? Red Ribbon Week — October 23-31 — is a great time for health or science teachers to schedule this engaging and informative class!
Americans are still way too tolerant of drunken driving?
FUNDING UPDATE
IDIPIC raised $3,594.44 during its Keep It a Safe Summer campaign. Since we missed our goal of $5,000, IDIPIC is extending the campaign and accepting donations to mid-October. They can be sent to IDIPIC, POB 358, Oak Harbor WA 98277. Most of the KISS funding was made possible by our returning event sponsors Farmers Insurance/Voit Agency, Harada Physical Therapy, HomePlace Special Care Center, Martin’s Auto Electric, Munros’ Driving Instruction, Oak Harbor Les Schwab Tire Center, State Farm/Landry Agency, Tradewinds Insurance, Whidbey Weekly and Island Thrift. Thank you Partners in Prevention!
