Ignite announces Kick Butts Day-Mar 15

KICK BUTTS DAY is March 15, 2017!

 

In IGNITE NEWS:

 

Eleven of our IGNITE youth went to Lead & Seed Training in Eureka Springs this past weekend and learned a great deal on how to  lead  other youth in the fight of Tobacco, Drug, and Alcohol Prevention. The IGNITE Youth next will head to Mountain Home March 31-April 1, 2017 for a SYNAR Conference at the Ramada Inn.

 

Please, Please mark your calendars for the 5th Annual Party in the Park on Saturday April 8, 2017 at Minnie Harris Park in Harrison from 11:00 am-7:00 pm. It will be an amazing time so please take a moment to look at the attached flyer for all the details.

 

Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco.  More than 1,000 events are expected in schools and communities across the United States and even around the world.  This year Kick Butts Day will be on March 15th, 2017. 

 

On Kick Butts Day, teachers, youth leaders and health advocates organize events to:

- Raise awareness of the problem of tobacco use in their state or community;

- Encourage youth to reject the tobacco industry's deceptive marketing and stay tobacco-free; and

- Urge elected officials to take action to protect kids from tobacco.

 

Why is Kick Butts Day important? 

We have made great strides in the fight against tobacco. But every day, more than 3,000 kids under 18 try smoking for the first time and 700 kids become new regular, daily smokers. Tobacco use is still the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., killing more than 480,000 people every year.

 

By getting involved in Kick Butts Day and other activities, America’s youth can raise awareness about the tobacco problem, encourage peers to be tobacco-free and support effective solutions to reduce tobacco use.

 

Kick Butts Day is organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. The first Kick Butts Day was held in 1996.  Please visit http://www.kickbuttsday.org/ for more information.

 

Daylight Savings Time Starts

 

Daylight Saving Time
starts this Sunday, March 12.

We may be losing an hour of sleep this weekend,
but by moving the clocks forward,
we get to enjoy more daylight throughout the warm months.

 

Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, most of Arizona and American Samoa don’t change their clocks. If you live elsewhere in the U.S. don’t forget to “spring forward” your clocks and watches at 2 AM your local time on Sunday.

Your smoke alarm batteries need to be changed twice a year. Make it easy to remember and change the batteries in your smoke alarm when you change your clocks!
