A great day for Kids Safety Camp

On June 6, nearly 100 second, third and fourth grade kids came together and spent the day at the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA campus for the 2014 Kids Safety Camp. Kids came from schools in Marshalltown, Marshall County and other neighboring counties. The YMCA-YWCA and the Marshalltown Police Department co-host this event which is in its 15th year.

We would like to thank all the people who helped make this a great day for the kids. To all the businesses and service clubs that donated money to this year’s camp. With your continued support year after year, kids will learn about safety and have a fun time when they attend Safety Camp. To the instructors from the Marshalltown Fire Department, Marshalltown Area Paramedic Service, Farm Bureau, Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, Marshalltown Police Department, and the Lifeguards from the YMCA-YWCA, for their time and effort in working with the kids. To all the team counselors who volunteered their day to be a part of the kids teams.

Thanks also goes to the Marshall County Pork Producers for grilling pork burgers and hot dogs for lunch. To Paul Dunn from Oasis Snow-Cone for the afternoon snow-cone treats. To Entertainment Group and Keith West for putting on a great magic show for all at the end of the day.

Finally, to all the kids that participated this year, we hope you learned a little safety and had a fun day with us.
