It was the Great American Smoke-Out on Thursday November 16 and the South Hadley Peer Leaders were ready to reach out to their classmates with a pledge campaign. For every student who signed on the poster and pledged not to smoke ANYthing and not to vape either, they could enter their name in the raffle to win a set of earbuds from The 84 Movement. Some students actually said they had never heard of The Great American Smoke-Out before. There were a few who were reluctant to sign if it meant no vaping and this gave the Peer Leaders a chance to explain why vaping is NOT harmless. A lot of conversation was generated and there were 5 winners in our raffle!
