Touring group of performers to promote abstinence


A touring group of performers in their 20s will be in Toledo Friday to present Rewind Toledo, a collection of abstinence-oriented videos, skits, drama, testimonies, and commercial parodies for teenagers and young adults. The group, known as Silver Ring Thing, will be at Notre Dame Academy, 3535 W. Sylvania Ave., from 7 to 9 p.m., for the free show.

Ann Eckles, chairman of the Toledo stop, says, “At the end of the event, students can choose to purchase a silver ring as a symbol and reminder of their decision to wait” until marriage for certain intimate behavior. Rings are $20.

A session for parents will be held at the beginning of the evening.

Rewind Toledo is sponsored by local Roman Catholic and pregnancy-support organizations.
