Helicopter Visit Highlights Red Ribbon Week

Kindergarten and first grade students at Marigny Elementary School in Mandeville were delighted when on the second day of Red Ribbon Week, a Drug Enforcement Agency helicopter landed at their campus. Each class was able to take a close up look at the Bell 407 helicopter and have their photographs taken in front of it. The father of one of the students was the helicopter pilot, at right. The agency cooperates in a number of Red Ribbon Week activities at schools throughout the parish. The goal of the special event is to encourage a drug-free lifestyle among young people. Red Ribbon Week was established in 1988 to honor the memory of a drug enforcement agent who was killed in the line of duty.
