Special Project-Window Coverings --Volunteers Needed

Safety Town conducted it's first safety education program on January 8, 2007. We officially turn 9 years old this week. In that timeframe we have had 327,000 visitors to our facility...and counting. We could not have done it without the help of spectacular volunteers such as YOU! Thank you all.
