The Pioneer Lions Club welcomed Sheriff Steve Towns to speak to them about the D.A.R.E. program that has recently been brought back to the local schools. Sheriff Towns mentioned that the new program educates students in much more than drug abuse. The program reaches out to elementary students to teach them life long skills on making good choices when it comes to bullying, internet safety and domestic issues. Sheriff Towns stressed how important it is to reach younger students and to stress to them the importance of not using drugs. Sheriff Towns was the guest of Pioneer Lions Club member Jim Delcamp.
