Sticker Shock another Success!
Teams of teens with adult chaperones from Des Plaines, Park Ridge and Niles blanketed retail businesses in Maine Township in April to distribute posters that say "Thanks for not providing alcohol to teens." The posters recognize and encourage adults that do not provide alcohol to anyone under the age of 21. This event was planned in conjunction with Alcohol Awareness Month in April and also as prom and graduation season approaches.
