Saturday, April 30 is DEA Nationwide Prescription Drug Take-Back Day and Baldwin Star Search presented by Project Rebound. Both of these events are alcohol and drug-free events for students in Baldwin County.
There are consequences for underage drinking and consequences for parents or other adults providing access of alcohol to anyone underage. The reason there is a legal age limit is because statistics show the earlier someone starts drinking, the higher the possibility of him or her becoming an addict.
The Drug Enforcement Administration will hold their second Nationwide Prescription Drug Take-Back Day April 30 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. The day will give everyone an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines-flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash-both pose potential safety and health hazards. That's why there are drop-off locations for your unwanted prescription drugs. You can find a list of those locations online at www.dea.gov . Baldwin County residents can visit www.proudtobefreebaldwin.org to find drop off locations.
The third annual Baldwin Star Search presented by Project Rebound will be held at the Wharf Conference Center April 30 from 7:00 - 9:30 p.m. The Baldwin Star Search is a talent competition in which area high schools are asked to have a talent show where the top two winners from their school advance to perform at this event.
High school students will sign drug and alcohol-free pledge cards as their admission to the event. All seven high schools in Baldwin County will be participating for a total of 12 acts and 22 students. The participating acts vie for a chance to win great prizes, in addition to the bragging rights to the Best in Baldwin County.
This family, fun, alcohol-free event is open to students, parents, and community members. Studio 10 Host, Cherish Lombard and WABB Morning Show Host, Q-Tip will be the emcees for the event.
