Early in the morning on Friday October 25, Burney Lions were out in the cool air grilling pancakes and sausages for a preschool Red Ribbon breakfast.
The community breakfast, sponsored by the Burney PTA, was part of Red Ribbon Week, a “celebration for students choosing to be drug free.”
Fifth grade teacher Stacey Bower organized this week’s activities. Teachers and PTA members helped to serve the meal.
The theme for this year was “Life is a Journey. Travel Drug Free.” The weeks activities began with a flag salute at the flag pole. During the week, every class in the elementary school prepared a red ribbon to hang in the hall.
Speaking of the breakfast, Bower said, “We are very fortunate to have the partnership with the Lions. It provides a wonderful opportunity for the community to come into the school.”
In addition to parents, children, teachers, friends, and school supporters, several Raiders’ cheerleaders from Burney High School came to add pep to the gathering.
It was a great way to start a day on the journey of life.
