We have changed our name from the NEW TRADITION COALITION to DRAW THE LINE LAWRENCE so it better fits our purpose and mission. We call on all community members to come together and DRAW THE LINE on underage drinking and drug use for a healthier and safer place to live.

Just a reminder for all Lawrence Parents. Here is a chance to meet other parents and get to know your child's friend's parents better. Join in our lively discussion this month about "TEENS and SEX".
You may find them shocking, but these are the facts about teenage sexual activity:

Ten percent of all 13-year-olds have had sexual intercourse.
50 percent of all teenagers have had sex by the time they enter the 10th grade.
One in every five teenage girls will become pregnant during high school.
Half of all teenagers don't believe oral sex is sex.
By the time they finish high school, two-thirds of all young adults will have become sexually active.

Join us Thursday, October 22 from 6-7 PM, in the Free State High School library classroom for the next Free State Parents Group. We will tackle the difficult topic of teen sex. Get the information and support you need, and use this information to become a force in your child's life and encourage him/her to make good choices!

Please RSVP so I know how many parents to expect.
See you Thursday!
The New Tradition Coalition and our dedicated friend Dave Schieffer
