Orofino Elementary fifth graders in Mrs. Baylor’s and Mrs. Gilmer’s classrooms took part in the Tar Wars presentation. This program is done in conjunction with Clearwater Valley Hospital and Orofino Health Clinic. It is a tobacco-free education program for kids from the American Academy of Family Physicians. Mary Curtis, Respiratory Therapist with CVH, was the presenter for the program, along with Smokey Sue. Smokey Sue is equipped to smoke a cigarette and to show the tar that is collected after smoking just one cigarette.
