Letter from President Schulz regarding safety this weekend
We all like to have fun, but the fun stops when somebody gets hurt -- physically or otherwise.
Fake Patty's Day is becoming a regional event that draws visitors from other states to Manhattan. But it's a tradition that does not make us proud, especially when somebody gets hurt. That's why we want you to take care of yourself and others this weekend.
- Use SafeRide or walk rather than drive;
- Practice the buddy system;
- Drink plenty of water;
- Call the police if you see someone who needs help, and encourage your friends to do the same;
- And behave responsibly.
The Riley County Police Department will enforce laws in order to maintain a safe environment for everybody. Last Fake Patty's Day police issued 1,033 citations related to alcohol. We don't want you to become a part of the statistics.
So if you plan to attend Fake Patty's Day, be sure to take care of yourself and others.
Be safe, Cats!
