Substance Abuse Poster Contest a winning event

Richard A. Savoy – Substance Abuse Poster Contest Chairman, Knights of Columbus, Council 5333, Kemptville Over the past several years, many fraternal organizations, businesses, schools, churches, synagogues and individuals have donated their time and money to the fight against the ever present epidemic of substance abuse. One way to rectify this worldwide problem is through the spread of information. Increasing public awareness concerning

the dangers of drugs and alcohol through the cooperation of individuals and organizations has garnered significant results. The Knights of Columbus is an international, Catholic, family, fraternal service organization with nearly 1.8 million members in nearly 14,000 local c o u n c i l s . L a s t y e a r, Knights donated more than 68 million volunteer hours and $154 million to charitable and benevolent causes, sponsoring projects to benefit the

Catholic Church, councils, communities, families, pro-life and youth. Congratulations to our Kemptville schools: Holy Cross Catholic School, South Branch Elementary School and North Grenville District High School (NGDHS) for their participation in the 7th annual Knights of Columbus Substance Abuse Poster contest. With over 90 posters submitted, the judges had to choose a winning poster from the age groups of 8 to 11 and 12 to 14. Winning

I can help you weigh your options.


facilities like the animal research laboratory, the food science building and, of course, a modern commercial kitchen in the cafeteria. Overall, the residents seemed mostly satisfied with the summit, despite a lack of understanding going into it about what it really was. Hopefully, in two years it’ll grow to be a full-day event, so that there’s more time for twoway communication, and so more content can be added to really pique the interest of, and to attract, more rural residents. More specific information on subjects like agricultural innovations, local food opportunities, green energy alternatives and also location specific historical information would certainly help. Special thanks should go to the economic development staff for organizing this important event.

continued from front page After a quick lunch of soup and sandwiches in the cafeteria of the former Kemptville College, for those who signed up there was a guided bus tour of the rural areas of the municipality. Municipal staff and knowledgeable local residents were on hand to provide background information, key points of interest and insight as the bus wound its way through rural North Grenville. Walking from Parish Hall where the summit took place to the cafeteria for lunch, there were several reminders about both the shadow and sunlight that the former Kemptville College represents for North Grenville. It’s a reminder about how vibrant and important it was in the past, but is now dark and silent. But it also is a reminder about the possibilities for a very bright future as you walk by some great

in the age group of 8 to 11 for Alcohol Abuse from South Branch Elementary was Wade Claxton, and from Holy Cross Catholic School for Substance Abuse was Payton Cory. In the 12 to 14 category the winners from NGDHS were Kevin Streight for Alcohol Abuse, and Brianne Ferguson for Substance Abuse. The winners will receive a certificate and $100 dollars for their efforts and artistic expression. A big part of the success of this contest goes out to our students, school staff and our wonderful judges. The winners’ posters move onto District, next to Provincial and hopefully onto International. Good luck and looking forward to next year! On behalf of the Kemptville Knights of Columbus Council 5333, congratulations to all who participated on another successful Substance Abuse Poster contest. Best Regards,
