Another great event took place Jan. 24 at Soldotna Middle School. More than 115 parents and grandparents took the time to attend the fifth annual Children's Snowmobile Safety Awareness Event with their children. Snowmobile safety awareness information was stressed, and more than 185 children's certified snowmobile helmets were purchased at $25 each.
Kenai Peninsula Safe Kids for the Central Peninsula Area has many wonderful people working with it to make our community children safer from unintentional injuries and deaths.
Special recognition and thanks goes to our sponsors: Central Peninsula Safe Kids lead agency Central Peninsula General Hospital, Caribou Hills Cabin Hoppers, Kenai Peninsula McDonald's, A-1 Enterprises, Soldotna Community Schools and Soldotna Middle School, Jersey Subs and Burdick Enterprises.
I especially want to thank Dena and Scott Cunningham of Kenai Peninsula McDonald's, as they are always a major force behind the event. Dena works countless hours to make this event happen.
