Kids can learn safety lessons
Every minute of every day, children everywhere are injured - at times fatally - by not realizing the possible dangers that surround them. Through education, many of these accidents can be eliminated and children can lead safer lives.
Safety Day Camp for Kids, a free program for children ages 8 to 11, will provide such education on Tuesday morning, Aug. 6.
Topics to be covered in this year's safety day camp for kids include guns, lawn mowers, electrical, hazards of drugs/smoking, animal safety and others. Since the topics change each year, those whoparticipated in the past will still benefit from attending.
The 19th Annual Safety Day Camp for Kids will be held at the Former DNR Station in Merrill with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m., and the program running from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. A snack will be provided, but participants are asked to bring their own sack lunch. Indoor facilities are available the event of inclement weather.
