Anti-drug rally and march

An anti-drug rally and march, along with tent services, are scheduled for Aug. 10-15 in Georgetown.

Everlasting Hope Ministries, under the leadership of the Rev. Anthony “Tony” Neal, will sponsor its 28th Annual Community Anti-Drug Rally & March on Saturday, Aug. 14. The march will begin at 11 a.m. on the grounds of the Richard Allen School, located at 316 South Railroad Avenue in Georgetown.

Organizers said the purpose of the rally and march is to send a positive message to the entire community — especially to youth — that says yes to life and no to drugs. Participants will be carrying signs and spreading their anti-drug messages through the streets of Georgetown.

The march will return to the Richard Allen School grounds, where Fun Day activities will be held from noon until 4 p.m. There will be a variety of games, food, bounce houses, train rides, door prizes and more. Everything will be provided free of charge.

Exhibit tables will also be available for those interested in distributing helpful literature and other items. Those who are interested in sponsoring a vendor table should contact Tony Neal. Free T-shirts will be provided to the first 300 participants. For more information, contact Vanessa Neal at (302) 854-6692 or the Rev. Tony Neal at (302) 381-3711).
