This Saturday is Child Safety Day in Eagle

The Eagle Optimist Club will hold the second annual Child Safety Day at the Landing Community Center on Saturday, June 18, 1:00 to 4:00 pm.

Activities scheduled include bicycle safety, fire prevention, and personal safety. There will be demonstrations, exhibits and door prizes.

To draw attention to the event, the Eagle Optimist Club recruited a major sponsor, Washington Trust Bank, and participated along with them at the Family Fun Area, a new attraction at Eagle Fun Days.  Along with inflatables, miniature golf, spin art, and face painting, children were asked to make a drawing of something they do to stay safe. All entries will go into a drawing for movie passes at Edwards Cinemas.

Many thanks to the coordinators of this year's Child Safety Day: Gretchen Brown, Integrity Financial, Chair; Myrna Harris, Ada County Sheriff's Department, Exhibits and Inspiration, and Brandy Etheridge, Bank of the Cascades, Bike Safety.
