Letters To The Editor
Vietnam vet says thanks:
Please accept not only my heartfelt gratitude, but also other veterans’ thanks for your participation and the City of Holly Springs as well.
Two months ago, the town of Marked Tree, Ark., held a similar celebration -- now both cities have a common bond in giving us Vietnam veterans a long overdue “welcome home!”
Your chamber of commerce, police department, fire department and other volunteers all deserve the most “kudos.”
Again, thanks from all of us and pass it along!
Designate a driver!:
Holiday celebrations require party hosts and party goers to think ahead to plan what food to serve, what music to play or what gift to bring.
And most adults also are including the most important element of the perfect party plan – the designated driver.
According to a 2008 survey conducted by TNS Custom Research, more than 137 million American adults have been a designated driver or been driven home by one.
For adults hosting parties, remember these tips to help have a safe celebration:
When serving alcohol beverages, offer a variety of good food;
Offer non-alcohol beverages for the designated drivers;
Serve guests one drink at a time;
Stop serving alcohol one hour before the party ends.
A&B Distributing Company and Anheuser-Busch encourage adults who choose to drink to do so responsibly and to use designated drivers and alternate transportation if they may have had too much to drink.
Thanks to efforts like these and increased law enforcement, our nation is making progress in the fight against drunk driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drunk-driving fatalities have declined 38 percent since 1982.
For more party tips and to thank your favorite designated drivers with a fun thank-you e-card, visit www.designateddriver.com.
Remember, “Responsibility Matters.”
