Members of the Madison High School softball team fought back against drunk driving Feb. 3 through the Sticker Shock program.
Players placed bright green decals on nearly every case of beer at two local liquor stores: Main Street Wine Cellars at 300 Main St. and Rose City Liquors, 84 Main St.
Each of the 15 participating team members accrued service hours for her efforts, part of Madison High School’s volunteer requirement.
Designed to deter persons of legal drinking age from purchasing alcohol for minors, Sticker Shock decals display information about the penalties—up to six months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines—associated with buying booze for underage kids.
Program organizer Frank Iannarone of the Madison Pharmacy spearheaded this event for the sixth consecutive year.
Sticker Shock is sponsored by the Madison Alliance Against Substance Abuse in partnership with the Community Coalition for a Safe and Healthy Morris and Morris County Prevention is Key.
