Memorial Day Letter to the Editor

May 14, 2013

Dear Editor:

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, and this much-anticipated holiday is right around the corner. It’s a fun time when families and friends gather to celebrate with backyard barbecues, boat excursions and other outdoor activities. It’s also an opportunity for all of us to help keep our community safe. As fellow citizens, Silver Eagle Distributors and our employees are renewing our pledge to be or use a designated driver over Memorial Day weekend and any time alcohol is part of our plans.


To help promote responsible celebrations this Memorial Day, Silver Eagle Distributors, the local Anheuser-Busch distributor, will be implementing programs such as Alert Cab to provide free cab rides home for bar and restaurant patrons who may have had too much to drink. We also will be providing our retailers with Driver’s License guides and We I.D. materials to assist in identifying and preventing those who are underage from purchasing and consuming alcohol.


These are our roads and we have a shared responsibility to keep them safe. However you get home this Memorial Day weekend, please designate a driver.





John L. Nau, III
President & CEO
Silver Eagle Distributors, L.P.
