Grayson County is ramping up to celebrate Red Ribbon Week from Oct. 25 through 31 this year.

Red Ribbon Week is observed to create awareness for the dangers of drugs, and focuses on children, with many activities being held in local schools.

The week will kick off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Grayson County Judicial Building at 10 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 26.

Students are encouraged to dress the part all week with a variety of themes. On Monday, everyone is invited to show their support by wearing red. Tuesday is “Mustache you to not do drugs or bully” day, and students can don mustache-themed gear.

On Wednesday, the theme is “Power to be drug free,” and everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite super hero shirt. Thursday is the day to don your favorite sports team’s attire for “be on a drug-free team” day.

Friday is “Say BOO to drugs” day, and Halloween costumes are encouraged.
