Grant funds DUI prevention event in Kittery
KITTERY, Maine — The town of Kittery will host an "Every 15 Minute" program in the spring of 2010, before school prom season, as a result of a grant recently obtained by the Rotary Club of Kittery.
A partnership of firefighters, police, school, Rotary Club, Lions Club, York Hospice, and numerous other town organizations and businesses are contributing to put on an interactive multi-day program.
This is designed to heighten awareness of the tragedy of young people killed in alcohol-related car accidents. "Every 15 Minutes" is a national program (www.every15minutes.com) last conducted in Kittery more than six years ago.
The message is still remembered by students who were at R.W.Traip Academy at the time. The Kittery Rotary Club applied for, and received from Rotary District 7780, a grant of almost $3,000, the largest grant of its kind awarded by the District this year.
The funds will be coupled with local donations from the partnering organizations in hopes of ensuring that young lives will be saved.
