SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

In lockstep with the National Red Ribbon Campaign, San Clemente is also gearing up for its week of recognition and pledging to remain drug-free.
The Red Ribbon Campaign began with a group of parents who were concerned with the well-being of their children, having seen drug abuse in their own communities.
San Clemente High School typically honors the week with different activities and campaigns, starting this year on Oct. 15.
There will be a parade and pep rally at 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 15, down Avenida Del Mar with the pep rally taking place at the San Clemente Community Center lawn. National Red Ribbon Week is Oct. 23-31, although San Clemente’s is scheduled a week earlier.
