Curie Elementary School provided Red Ribbon Week activities during the last week of October. Through generous community contributions, including from the University City Community Association, every student at Curie received a pair of earbuds with this year’s theme “Send A Message, Don’t Do Drugs!” The earbuds were attached to a drawing contest that showed off Curie students’ ideas of healthy choices. At the end of Red Ribbon Week, Curie hosted the Red Ribbon Week Field Event and the students were able to meet officers and employees from the Marines, Customs and Border Protection, Coast Guard, Marque Urgent Care, MADD, San Diego Police, School Police, Fire Department, and Air and Marine Branch of the CPB. Highlights of the day were the Air and Marine helicopter landing and taking off, the Fire Department’s ladder truck extending its ladder, the Marine ARFF spraying water on the field, demonstrations of K9 dogs at work, sitting in Coast Guard rescue equipment, looking at the cool police motorcycle, and trying on police gear. Students also wrote healthy choices on red ribbons and got great Healthy Choices swag like pencils and bubbles. Red Ribbon Week is an annual alcohol, tobacco, drug, and violence prevention awareness campaign observed the last week of October in the United States, which began as a tribute to fallen DEA special agent Enrique Camarena in 1985.

And their next production is the Tennessee Williams play “A Streetcar Named Desire.” The shows will be on Dec. 3-6, starting at 7 p.m. “A Streetcar Named Desire” is considered one of the greatest plays in American history, and take this local opportunity to relive the story of Blanche, Stanley, Stella, and Mitch.

HOME FRONT SAN DIEGO

Balboa Park was transformed into a naval training base and San Diego became a hub of military activity.

EFFECTIVE LOVE SPELLS TO GET EX HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND OR EX WIFE/GIRLFRIEND AND CURE INFERTILITY THAT WORKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.  Contact Dr. Odunga at [email protected] OR Whats App/CALL 2348167159012

I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twins girls after 12 years of marriage.

When I came online last year, I met a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at [email protected] and later he gave me his Whats App number which is 2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twins girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man. Contact his email at [email protected] OR Whats App/Call 2348167159012 and you too will give a testimony too to help others
