  • Next week is The Purple Project, sponsored by Stand Together, Make a Difference. The week long observance will be dedicated to Opiate Abuse Awareness. Please wear purple on Wednesday, January 25th to show your support. The Herren Project created the purple initiative to break the stigma of addiction, bring awareness to the dangers of substance abuse and encourage positive decision making. To show your support, wear purple next week. A contest will be taking place all next week. We ask that you take pictures of your purple pride in front of the purple bulletin board in the cafeteria. Post your pictures on twitter and @DanburyBOG with the hashtag #GOpurple to participate in the contest. Prizes will be given out at the end of the week.
