SADD Alberta, in partnership with the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission, has implemented a liquor bag campaign whereby Alberta students of all ages can add their personal message on the dangers of impaired driving to a paper liquor bag. This activity assists educators in continuing the conversation about the dangers of drinking and driving. This campaign started in Alberta in 2012 and has continually grown in success and interest. This is Vegreville’s 3rd year participating in the paper bag campaign.

Community Peace Officer Ken Podoborozny along with school resource officer Constable Jay Gagnon, delivered over 1500 paper bags to the 4 schools in Vegreville, and the one school in Mundare. All the completed bags will be submitted to be judged by members of SADD Alberta and the AGLC. The overall winner will receive $500 gift certificate and other category winners could win up to $200 in gift certificates. Winners will be announced by March 31, 2017.

Community Peace Officer Ken Podoborozny delivered the colourful bags to the Liquor Den in Vegreville, Salty’s Liquor in Vegreville, Vegreville Liquor Store and Mundare Liquor Store.
