STRATFORD, Conn. — Are you under 21 and hoping to score some booze for prom night?

Don’t try it in Stratford, say members of Stratford Partnership for Youth and Families.

Members of the group and the police department’s Police Explorers went on their annual “Sticker Shock” campaign recently, slapping stickers detailing the consequences of giving alcohol to minors on multi-packs of beer, wine and coolers in three popular shops.

Albert Permonzono, owner of The House of Spirits, said the campaign highlights the social responsibility of the community and the dangers of underage drinking.

Though the reminder stickers are aimed at prom and graduation season, he keeps the “WARNING” sticker on his cooler door and the cash register all year long.

The groups hope the stickers remind buyers that they must be 21 to purchase alcohol and that buying alcohol for minors is also against the law.

In addition to The House of Spirits, South Main Package Store and the 7-11 on Paradise Green participated in the campaign.
