We are all so proud of some of our younger residents and how well they listened and learned during this year’s Safety Town program. Throughout the week, the students (led by over 30 high school counselors) learned about:
Poison – how to avoid dangerous products and what to do if you find one
Gun safety
Animal safety
Bus etiquette
Stranger danger
Water safety
Fire safety
Traffic safety
and so much more!
This week would not have been possible without the help and assistance of so many. We especially want to thank the following:

To our Safety Town Director:
Words cannot express how appreciative we all are to Mrs. Jeni Potter for volunteering to create, coordinate, and lead this year’s Safety Town. As a former elementary school teacher and current ER nurse, her knowledge and expertise is only surpassed by the amount of energy and love she brought to the program. Thank you Mrs. Potter for ALL of your hard work and dedication. A special thanks also to Erin Potter, who worked so hard to assist in making everything run smoothly.
