Letters: Dry month for grad

Making healthy and safe choices applauded by RCMP

Here we are at the end of another school year, and for the graduating students of EMCS, the beginning of their journey to make their mark in this world.

It is truly something to celebrate, and something in which they can take great pride. In support of this year’s EMCS graduating students,  the Sooke RCMP have once again undertaken to abstain from the consumption of alcohol for the entire month of June, which coincides with the school’s graduation celebrations.

In so doing, they have been joined by representatives from the Sooke Fire Department, the Sooke Ambulance Station and a growing number of community leaders and citizens who care so much about the graduates that they will make this gesture of support as well.

More and more, this community is speaking up loudly to send the message that we support the celebration of their accomplishments while protecting the sanctity of their future and encouraging smart, healthy choices, including resisting the pressures to use alcohol as a means to celebrate.

Congratulations graduates of 2012! Work hard, make healthy choices, and there will be no limit to the success you can enjoy.
