December is national impaired driving prevention awareness month

The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office would like to acknowledge December as National Impaired Driving Prevention Awareness Month.

The holidays are always a fun time to gather with friends and family.

Although they want everyone to enjoy this special time, they ask that
you stop and think about staying safe and being responsible.

Since December has a higher accident rate on average than other months, we urge you to remember the importance of being in the proper state, when behind the wheel.

Let’s work together and stay safe this holiday season!

Fun Fact May 21, 2021.

Tomorrow is Saturday, May 22, 2021.  Just another Saturday for most of you.  For me and my family it marks a milestone.  My oldest son Mason will be graduating from High School.  I don’t know where the last 18 years have gone.  It’s true what you hear, the older you get the faster the time seems to go.  Tomorrow Mason will walk across a stage and receive his diploma.  In a few months he’ll be heading off to college and I’m sure those months will fly by too.  I’m proud of the young man he has become and I’m sure the Lord has big plans for him.  If you have a moment, join me in saying a little prayer for him and all the other young men and women who will be taking this first step into adulthood.  The world they are going into is sure different from when I was that age.  It will be up to them to try to right the wrongs and lead us into the future, not to mention raise the generation that will take over after them.  No pressure.
