In support of its Peace Project, America's Pride -- a group of Toledo area students in middle and high school who perform in northwest Ohio -- will be filming a video on Main Street in downtown Sylvania. The project features a song and new music that will be used throughout the country to encourage the Peace Project. In song, the message will reassure young people who need assistance to not suffer alone but to seek solace in others and know that there is help for them, according to information from the Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce. The group, described as one of the leading drug prevention teams in the country, spreads its message through song and features 30 to 40 young people, aged 13 to adulthood. Bill Geha, who is intervention and prevention coordinator for Sylvania Schools, is co-founder of the local drug prevention program that was formed in 1987.
