On Thursday Nov. 21, 2019 and Friday Nov. 22, 2019, CDTFC partnered with SADD Clubs at Columbia High School and Goff Middle School for this year’s  Great American Smokeout. Historically, the event encourages people to quit smoking for a day. This year, we encouraged students to go tobacco and e-cigarette free.  Thank you to Alyssa Evans and her SADD club students for partnering with us! Check out some photos from the events below.
