The Sixth Annual Drug Awareness Day is Saturday at the Oak Ridge Municipal Pool.
It’s hosted by the Oak Ridge Chapter of the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks.
The pool is located at 172 Providence Road.
Drug awareness demonstrations will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside the pool area Saturday.
“Hundreds of prizes will be given away to those participating in a drug awareness activity,” a press release said. “Some of the prizes include T-shirts, coloring books, swim noodles, beach balls, and Frisbees.”
This event is in partnership with Anderson County Allies for Substance Abuse Prevention, Anderson County Sheriff’s Department, Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department, and Roane County Anti-Drug Coalition.
“Elks believe that the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow,” the press release said. “With that in mind, the Elks Drug Awareness Program reaches out to youth of all ages and backgrounds. As the largest volunteer drug awareness program in the United States, the Elks Drug Awareness Program strives to educate all members of society about the dangers of illegal drug use and to help prevent the abuse of legalized and prescription drugs.”
