But it will also keep alive the memory of teenagers who lives were lost so tragically, said Jennifer Carney Garrett, an event coordinator.

It might be about the accident or it might be a way to encourage other teenagers to be safe drivers. Just whatever the family wants to include.”The stories and photographs may be dropped off at the Piggly Wiggly on Highway 231. The photographs should be in an envelope or plastic bag.center_img Skip Print Article Memory book to tell story of teen drivers Published 11:31 pm Friday, November 4, 2011 “Stories may be faxed to 770-7447 and the picture emailed to [email protected], if that is more convenient,” Garrett said.Last year’s Teen Driving Event was the first of its kind in Pike County and attracted more than 300 participants.Garrett said the event was such a great success because of the volunteer support.“We had many generous sponsors and again will be asking for monetary donations and door prizes,” she said. “We thank all of those who have already stepped up and volunteered their time, talents and services.
