MADISON, NJ - On Saturday, February 6, sixteen Madison High School Softball Players spent their morning participating in “Sticker Shock”, a program designed to deter persons of legal drinking age from purchasing alcohol for minors.  

The participants placed bright green decals on just about every case of beer in two local liquor stores.  The stickers remind those of legal drinking age of the penalties (six months in jail and $1000 fine) if they are convicted of purchasing alcohol for minors.

The program was organized by Frank Iannarone from Madison Pharmacy and is sponsored by MAASA (Madison Alliance Addressing Substance Abuse, www.maasa.org) in partnership with The Community Coalition for a Safe and Healthy Morris and Morris County Prevention is Key (www.mcpik.org).  The participants also will also accrue community service hours a requirement at Madison High School.

Main Street Wine Cellars, located at 300 Main Street Madison and Rose City Liquors located at 84 Main Street in Madison were both very eager and cooperative to participate in this program for the fourth consecutive year.
