Family Connection plans to Kick Butts

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Twelve hundred shoes of Chelsea Middle School sixth-graders will cover the football field April 16 in recognition of national Kick Butts Day.

The campaign for tobacco free kids celebrates youth advocacy, leadership and activism to prevent youth from smoking and from being harmed by second-hand smoke.

Katie Boyd, first runner-up to Miss Alabama and a Pelham native, will be the event’s speaker.

The event starts at 2 p.m. and the public is invited to attend.
