Mesquite Elks Lodge # 2811 And The City Of Mesquite Announce Support For ‘Red Ribbon Week.’
The local Elks Lodge received a proclamation approved by the City Council and signed by Mayor Mark Weir proclaiming Oct 23- Oct 27 as Red Ribbon Week.
Red Ribbon Week was created in 1985 by neighbors of D.E.A agent Enrique (KIKI)
Camerena who was tortured and murdered in Mexico. Now in its 27th year, Red Ribbon Week is a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a Drug Free America.
The Elks Lodge through its Drug Awareness Program, with the help of the Mesquite Police Officers Association, will distribute red ribbons to schools, public service employees and throughout the community beginning Oct. 20. The motto of this year’s event is “The Best Me Is Drug Free.”
