(DECKERVILLE) -- The Sanilac County Drug Task Force will sponsor the 22nd Annual D.A.R.E. Junior High Invitational Track Meet on Thursday, May 2 at 4 p.m. at the Deckerville High School track. Students from each Sanilac County School will compete in both boys' and girls' divisions. The public is invited to attend free of charge. The D.A.R.E (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program started in 1990 and has been presented to over 16,800 Sanilac County 5th and 6th grades students. From September 1990 through June 2013, the Drug Task Force millage will have provided $971,000 in primary funding support for the program, which reinforces and supports a "drug free" message toward young people in a positive way.
