FAS Awareness Day in Tucson
September 9, 2001

Cathedral bells rang out at 9:09 a.m. at the Church of St. Augustine, and announcements were read from the pulpit of many churches throughout Tucson proclaiming FAS Awareness Day, telling all of the importance of educating our community about the dangers of drinking during pregnancy.

At noon, families gathered for a Family Support Picnic, one in Tucson and one in the Phoenix area. The Arc of Arizona and their chapters contributed sandwiches for hungry kids and their families.

Rep. Marion Pickens attended the Tucson picnic, and Channel 9 was present to report our event on the evening news.
