Planning on heading out for a Christmas drink sometime later this week? Well, the Kindersley RCMP wants you to know they will be working through the holidays.

They look forward to speaking with designated sober drivers and family members providing safe rides home, and to further their goals of sober driving this Christmas season, they have partnered with Westberry Elementary School and the Red Lion Inn in Kindersley to help spread their message.

West Central Online was on hand yesterday to see the paper bags decorated with holiday pictures and anti drinking and driving messages that are going to be handed out to customers with their purchases over the next week or two, as you can find a full submission from Corporal Amy Forbes with the Kindersley RCMP in a separate story below, after reading some of the member's first-hand comments as these local community members came together.

"Very excited about it. Basically I approached management at the Red Lion, and then the principal at Westberry School, and had an idea this year that it would be fun for all the kids to promote some safe driving messages," said Forbes about their newest sober driving campaign, "They were completely on board, I had their support from the very beginning. We dropped off some bags, and the kids decorated them, and they will be handed out with every purchase at the Red Lion."

Forbes was clearly excited to see the idea take off, and loved the creativity shown by the young students.

"The drawings are fantastic. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. The kids were very excited to be apart of this and I'm very excited as well."
