DEC gives thanks to North Texas Pressure Vessels for awards

Dear Editor,

The DEC (Drug-Endangered Children) coalition would like to extend a million thanks to North Texas Pressure Vessels for the fantastic job they did making the trophies for Red Ribbon Week in the schools.

DEC sponsored a contest for the students of Palo Pinto County to color or draw a poster related to drugs. The trophies were designed, made and donated by North Texas Pressure Vessels for first, second and third place in each age group. Great job!

Thanks again.
