Signs of unity against underage drinking will begin to spring up around Depew and Lancaster in time for prom and graduation season as the Lancaster-Depew Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition begins its third lawn sign campaign to promote parental responsibility and healthy choices.

Featuring the message, “No matter what occasion, keep in mind: Alcohol & kids don’t mix,” 24-by-16-inch lawn signs with stakes will be available for residents and businesses to post in their yards to show support for alcohol-free celebrations surrounding some of the most important events in teenagers’ lives.

The signs also carry the slogan “Underage Drinking: Not a Minor Problem,” which also is the message delivered when the coalition undertakes Project Sticker Shock, a campaign during which members place stickers on alcoholic beverage packages in area stores to warn adults about the legal implications of purchasing alcohol for minors.
