The Forsyth Township Police Department has initiated a new Drug Abuse Resistance Education — or D.A.R.E. — program in the Gwinn Area Community Schools. D.A.R.E. was taught in schools throughout Marquette County in the past. Last fall Sergeant Jesse Cadwell attended D.A.R.E. training in Virginia and can now teach the curriculum.
It was graduation day for some students from Mesick Elementary, but they’re not moving to middle school just yet. Students celebrated their graduation from the D.A.R.E. program with pizza and ice skating at the Wex in Cadillac. The celebration was the culmination of weeks of work in the program.
