“Safety Town” is once again coming to Fenton this summer. Fenton Kiwanis has open registration for the “Safety Town” program, which teaches pre-kindergartners, young 5s, and kindergartners a variety of life safety aspects.

 This is the 24th year Safety Town has been offered in the Fenton area. Registrations will be accepted until all available slots are filled.

 Safety Town is set up to resemble a small-scale “town” with small buildings, roads, street signs and railroad crossings. The interactive learning environment is used to offer practice in many of the safety lessons. It will be offered Aug. 5–8 at the Ellen Street Campus in Fenton.

 Two sessions are offered: Session One is from 9 a.m. to noon and Session Two is from 1 to 4 p.m. All lessons and activities relate to a specific topic regarding safety such as traffic and pedestrian safety, riding and parking a bicycle, stranger danger, playground safety, railroad safety, school bus safety, animal safety, sun safety, fire safety, swimming safety and much more.

 On Thursday, the last day of class, parents are invited to attend the Safety Town graduation ceremony to watch their children, wearing their Safety Town T-shirt and bicycle helmet receive their certificate.

 For more information or to register, call Fenton Kiwanis members, Cathy Utter (517) 230-6161, or Heidi Howieson (810) 955-6754,
