Mayor Janice S. Mironov, surrounded by local Township liquor license holders, issued a Proclamation recognizing Alcohol Awareness Month and kicking off the East Windsor “We Check for 21” initiative aimed at deterring underage drinking.  As part of the Township “We Check for 21” Campaign, liquor license holders are required to sign the ‘We Check for 21” Pledge as a condition of receiving their liquor license renewal.  The Pledge affirms each liquor license holder’s strong support of East Windsor Township’s “We Check for 21” Program.  Various resource and informational materials and paraphernalia were distributed for use at these establishments.

Mayor Mironov publicly praised the license holders in attendance for their demonstrated interest and concern for this important community goal:   Karen Kleber of USA Wine Traders Club and East Windsor Bowl and Recreation Center;  Tara Welch of Bottle King;  Member Wayne Varga of Hightstown Elks #1955;  Paul Miller of The Peddie Golf Club;  Kevin Chabra of Americana Diner;  Matt Falcon of TGI Friday’s;  Kathy Vogel of Charlie Brown’s;  Jimmy Manaetas and Tony Menendez of the Town Diner;  Ranga Adavelly of PST Associates;  Michael Gebhardt and Steven Weston of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5700;  Ed Bogdan of David’s Pub & Package;  Jason Gershon of the Holiday Inn of East Windsor, and Brett Mansue of Days Inn of East Windsor.    

Mayor Mironov stated, “The Township supports and is proud to promote the ‘We Check for 21’ Program, which is designed to heighten the awareness and prevention of underage drinking within all of our communities.  There are many serious impacts to underage drinking, including many young drivers under 21 who are involved in automobile accidents have blood alcohol levels above the legal limit.  The ‘We Check for 21’ Program is an excellent vehicle to bring together municipal government leaders, young people, parents, key community and school leaders, policy makers and local businesses toward a common positive community effort.  We appreciate and call on all businesses and citizens to become more aware of and more involved in efforts to reduce underage drinking in our community.”
