Last Friday was a red-letter day for Park Lane Elementary School in Darby as 500 students, parents, and staff marched through the neighborhood carrying signs and chanting, “Say no to drugs,” in an effort to keep themselves and their community drug-free.

Darby Fire trucks led the brigade.

The annual event in honor of National Red Ribbon Week aims to unite the school and the community against one of the largest threats to the future success of young people.

“Taking a united and unequivocal stand against drugs sends a powerful message to our students that their success, in fact their lives, depends on identifying and making positive choices every step of the way,” Park Lane Elementary said in a statement.W-Katie- Red Ribbon-1
