This Memorial Day, Do Not Become a Memory!

This COVID-19 Memorial Day, do not become a memory!  As family and friends break free from shelter in place orders and begin to plan their Memorial Day celebration, we encourage you to plan while you can and designate a sober ride.  In addition, we have a special opportunity for the families of Austin County to view a video entitled “When Sean Speaks” that will change the way you think about drinking and driving. It changed Sean’s life forever.  These decisions do not just affect you, but your whole family.  To watch the video please enter the group code: AUSTIN.  The video can be found at  “We want all the citizens of Austin County to make it home safely during that weekend. No one wins when you drink and drive or use impairing drugs and drive,” said Michelle Wright of Bellville, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension agent for Austin County.  Please stay safe and enjoy!!!
