Middletown's White Out Night youth event takes place on Dec. 30, when participants will be walking down Main Street, wearing self-made white t-shirts with safe driving messages on them. They will also be handing out flyers to shoppers and diners, promoting a safe New Year’s holiday without drinking and driving.
Rushford's school-based youth leadership programs at Woodrow Wilson Middle School and Keigwin Middle School helped to make posters with safe driving messages for the event, and members of Middletown High School’s youth leadership group, Dragons In Action, decorated the t-shirts. The students feel passionate around the mission to convey how important it is for everyone to use good judgment and remain safe this New Year’s.
The group will meet at 6 p.m. in the board room on the basement level of the Chamber of Commerce at 393 Main St., then proceed to Main Street, promoting the message. Come join these Middletown Youth in raising awareness of a very important issue!White-Out Night draws participants from The and students from Middletown High's Dragons In Action, and Rushford's school-based youth leadership programs at Woodrow Wilson Middle School (Rams In Action) and Keigwin Middle School's Cougars in Action.
