Thanks from the Bottom of our Lungs
On January 2, 2011, North Carolina will celebrate the first birthday of the Smoke-Free Restaurants and Bars Law. Forsyth County residents have enjoyed one year of restaurants and bars serving up smoke-free air, without the health hazards of tobacco smoke.
Residents are encouraged to participate in “Tasty Tuesdays” by visiting your favorite restaurant or bar to eat out each Tuesday in January – for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – to celebrate smoke-free restaurants and bars. Be sure to let restaurant managers/owners know how much you appreciate the opportunity to enjoy smoke free dining.
For more information about the Smoke-Free Restaurants and Bars Law visit www.smokefree.nc.gov. If you want to know more about celebration events in the county, call Debbie Mason at 336-703-3260.
For information to help you or someone you know quit smoking, chewing, or dipping, please contact 1-800-QUIT-NOW or visit QuilineNC.com.
