Marymount Academy and OSAID Introduce New Mascot
Monday, October 26, 2009 (1:15 p.m.)

October 20, 2009 - Marymount Academy will be hosting an OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) special event on Monday, October 26, 2009 from 1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m at the school, 165 D’Youville Street Sudbury.

The purpose of the event is to introduce Barney-the new OSAID Mascot to the Sudbury Community. Barney will arrive by police escort accompanied by Ms. Nicole LaCroix, a member of the Provincial OSAID, Board of Directors.

Barney, an Issue Awareness Development Campaign Project, is starting his province-wide journey in Sudbury. Students at Marymount will be Barney's first official 'owners'-they will look after him, blog of his whereabouts on the OSAID website and post photos of Barney on his travels and pass him on the new 'owners' in other OSAID member schools.

Barney will travel from school to school, community to community and around the province. Where he goes is entirely for his 'owners' to decide.

Full details are on the OSAID website,

For further information, or for a photo opp, please contact Tracey Adams at Marymount Academy, phone 674-4231 ext: 113.
