Red Ribbon Week was a big success

The Conejo Valley Red Ribbon Week sponsored by the Conejo Valley Substance Prevention Authority was a tremendous success because of the overwhelming support from the entire community.

Charles Staley from the U.S. Army; Glenda Barnard from Congressman Anthony Beilenson's office; John Gorham for his artistic talent in designing our T-Shirts; and to all of the local merchants who generously donated prizes for our drawing.

A special thank you to the fabulous group from the Retired Senior Volunteer Program.  These wonderful people, under the leadership of Louise Danielle, processed more than 75,000 red ribbons.  It was very exciting to see the seniors of The Conejo helping the youth of today.

Kudos go to Terry Greenberg and his staff at The News Chronicle for their excellent coverage and support of the events during Red Ribbon Week.
