In an effort to prevent the loss of life or injury during this year’s high school prom and graduation season, Historic City News has learned that several agencies have joined together to deliver the “Party’s Over” reenactment for St. Johns County Students.
“Party’s Over” is a program that is presented across the nation to junior and senior level students prior to annual prom and graduation events. The program is a visual drama of sorts depicting an alcohol related accident that occurs at the conclusion of a high school party.
Drama students from Nease will depict the students involved in the accident, while local firefighters, law enforcement officers, judges and other first responders will act in the role they would normally serve following a DUI related incident.
The program is highly emotional and is designed to quickly educate the students on the dangers and consequences of drinking and driving.
The program will be presented to the junior and senior classes of St. Augustine High School on Thursday, May 21, 2009 at 10:00AM in the stadium located at St. Augustine High School by PACT Prevention Coalition of St. Johns County, The St. Johns County School District, The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, The St. Johns County Tax Collector and St. Johns County Fire Rescue.
