‘Just Say No To Drugs’

National speaker Ray Lozano went to the Merced Theater on March 11, and spoke to 1,950 students from area schools.

Ray has a great talent for keeping students interested in listening to the topic of the detrimental effects of alcohol, drug abuse, and vaping.

The high school students came from Golden Valley, El Capitan, Merced, Atwater, Yosemite, and Sequoia. The middle school students came from Cruickshank, Tenaya, Rivera, and Hoover.

All of the students received the Merced Elk’s wrist band “JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS.”

Funding and staffing for this 2nd annual event came from the Elks National Foundation, Merced Elks Lodge, the Carlos Vieira Foundation, and the Merced County Sheriff’s Department.
