Senator Brian Stewart and Representative Tom Demmer invite all area families to attend a free Children’s Safety Expo from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. September 21 at Reagan Middle School, 620 Division Street in Dixon.
The Expo will feature a Police K-9 demonstration, the landing of an OSF Life Flight medical helicopter, a large touch-a-truck interactive exhibit and more than 35 booths staffed by a variety of groups and organizations that assist children and families.
“Our Children’s Safety Expo will give area residents access to a bunch of government agencies and local businesses, all in one convenient location, as well as a lot of fun activities for the kids,” Stewart said. “The Expo also gives families an opportunity to interact with their friends and neighbors and compare notes about the issues they face as parents. Hope to see you there!”
Admission is free, and there will be free refreshments and giveaways at the event.
“Promoting children’s health and safety is extremely important, and this year’s Expo offers children and families a great opportunity to learn about issues such as cyber bullying, nutrition, bicycle safety, college savings programs and more,” said Demmer. “There will be plenty of hands-on activities for children, and parents will have access to a variety of materials relevant to children’s safety, nutrition and overall health.”
