Red Ribbon Week is next week and students in the three Starke County school corporations will be planting tulip bulbs in recognition of National Plant the Promise Week.
This unique observation during Red Ribbon Week helps reinforce the message to say no to drugs. The 200-300 bulbs provided will be planted near each school building. The red tulips will bloom in the spring and will be a reminder to stay drug free.
Most tulips to be planted will bloom in April where it will be a visual reminder to the students to be drug and tobacco free. The tulips will also bloom during National Alcohol Awareness Month and serve as a reminder to stay sober.
The tulip bulbs were provided to the schools by the Drug and Tobacco Free Starke County organization.
