S.A.D.D. Sticker Shock event
April 20, 2015
The event is called "Project Sticker Shock", which is an event that helps spread education and awareness to the public about the dangers of underage drinking. With prom, graduation and summer quickly approaching, the Mayfield Students Against Destructive Decisions (S.A.D.D.) club will work to remind and encourage community members to be a part of the solution of underage drinking. This is a reminder to the public that it is illegal to purchase or provide alcoholic beverages to anyone under the age of 21. Youth who begin drinking before the age of 15 are 5 times more likely to develop serious problems with alcohol than those who wait until 21 for their first alcoholic beverage. Stickers displaying the legal consequences of purchasing and providing alcohol to minors will be placed on boxes of multi-packs of beer and other alcoholic beverages in an effort to redu
.ce underage youth access to alcohol. The Sticker Shock Campaign brings attention to the consequences of underage drinking in a manner that involves youth, customers and business owners. It is an initiative that not only educates the community regarding underage drinking, but also enhances leadership traits and advocacy skills within the youth participating in the program.
We would like to thank Cecil Green, store manager at the Mayfield Stewart's, for being willing to participate in this important event. Attention Parents & Students: No lunch charges as of
Monday, May 18. Kucel Contracting and Kingsboro Lumber Donate To
Mayfield Junior-Senior High School

Kucel Contracting and Kingsboro Lumber Donate To Mayfield Junior-Senior High School
Mayfield CSD students and staff would like to
thank Stan Kucel of Kucel Contracting Inc. and
Kingsboro Lumber Co. for their extremely
generous donation of all the materials needed to
replace our old outdoor sports equipment shed.
This will also give the students of Mr.
Valovic’s Residential Structures class valuable,
hands-on experience by applying what they have
learned in class through building an enclosed
structure like this. The new shed is currently
being built in a new location, just past the end
of the storage garage in the upper parking lot.
If you have a summer project coming up, or need
something built or repaired, please support
these two local businesses in any way possible.
