Use designated driver when out
Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, and this much-anticipated holiday is Monday. It’s a fun time when families and friends gather to celebrate with backyard barbecues, boating on the river and other outdoor activities.
It’s also an opportunity for all of us to help keep our community safe. As fellow citizens, Triple Crown Beverage Group, Eagle Distributing Co. and our employees are renewing our pledge to be or use a designated driver over Memorial Day weekend and any time alcohol is part of our plans.
Throughout the Tri-State, these are our roads and we have a shared responsibility to keep them safe. We want to remind everyone: However you get home this Memorial Day weekend, please designate a driver. Have a safe and joyous Memorial Day.
Nick Williams, General manager, Eagle Distributing Co., Ashland
