Drinking & Driving Don’t Mix

The local theatrical presentation entitled “ Prom Night Tragedy” was the reenactment demonstration for the Junior and Senior Class at Vinton High School, sponsored by Partners in Education - PPG Industries.  A special thank you to all who helped make this event, including the services of West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital, Hixon Funeral Home, the Vinton High School Senior Class, and of course our dedicated Fire Department heroes.   An effective lesson was seen showing a likely outcome from drinking and driving.
