October 23rd- 31st is Red Ribbon Week

In honor of the oldest and largest drug prevention awareness campaign, Mayor Charles C. Kokoros has proclaimed October 23rd to 31st as Red Ribbon Week in Braintree.  To view the Proclamation, click here. 

The Braintree Community Partnership on Substance Use has partnered with BCAM to bring children ages 4 -9, a reading of the beautifully illustrated book, The Red Ribbon, A Story of Hope .  The Program, featured on BCAM TV and YouTube, includes a craft activity.  Materials for the craft activity are available in the foyer of Town Hall.  Click here to view the Story and Craft program.


The Red Ribbon is the tale of a very troubled kingdom.  Villagers are terribly unhappy and the King realizes he must do something.  The village weaver comes up with an idea that will save the kingdom as long as everyone is included.

Happiness is restored when the weaver’s magical red ribbon brings people together and inspires them to work together and help one another. The King and the Villagers soon discover that the magic is not in the red ribbon, but in the “Hands and Hearts of those who embrace it.”

The beautifully illustrated storybook has won numerous awards and has been nationally recognized by a number of organizations for helping to keep kids off drugs.

Although the book makes no mention of drugs, it is a pro-active, practical, and entertaining way to instill in children the values which will safeguard them against potential drug use.

We hope you and your children enjoy the program!
