Children can have fun this summer while also learning to stay safe by taking part in Safety Town, an annual program presented by the Kiwanis Club of Dearborn Outer Drive and the Dearborn High School Key Club.

During the activity-based program, youngsters ages 4 1/2 to 6 will learn important rules about staying safe when crossing the street and dealing with cars and traffic; as well as fire, electrical, poison, animal safety, weapon avoidance, sidewalk safety and “stranger danger” safety awareness.

Organizers say the benefits of Safety Town remain with its graduates for many years.

The instructors are state-certified teachers who have ample assistance from the Dearborn High School Key Club and members of the Kiwanis Club of Dearborn Outer Drive.

Safety lessons are taught by the Dearborn police and fire departments as well as representatives from DTE Energy and the Dearborn Public Schools.

Those participating in Safety Town will attend for 90 minutes from June 18 to 21 and June 25 to 27. A graduation ceremony with bike helmet distribution takes place on the last day of class June 27.

There are three different class times for parents to choose for their children, 9 to 10:30 a.m.; 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 3 to 4:30 p.m.

Safety Town takes place at Howard Elementary School, 1611 N. York, Dearborn. Registration is $35 per child and includes a T-shirt and properly fitted bike helmet.

Register online at DODKiwanis.org or by mailing checks to Kiwanis Club of DOD, P.O. Box 2142, Dearborn, MI 48123.
