Safe Kids Kenai Peninsula and participating organizations hosted the fourth annual Water Safety Event on May 5 at Skyview High School. This year 101 children, plus parents and caregivers, attended the event and learned about water safety with 92 purchasing Mustang survival personal flotation devices for $10.

Many thanks goes to our funding sponsors, Kenai River Sportfishing and Mustang Survival Inc., for their continual support, which allows Safe Kids, collaborating agencies and volunteers to make this event happen.

Safe Kids greatly appreciates all the time and effort put in by Alaska State Parks, Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, Central Emergency Services, Kenai Peninsula McDonald’s, Kenai Public Health Department, Central Peninsula Hospital, Jacques Kosto, Jack Ransom, Jacquline Erion, Sam Caswell, Mary Jane Hanley, Matt Fellman, Jared Lingafelt, Owen Dicks, Tristan Woods, Colten Jensen, Jenna Jensen, Michelle McKay, Mariah Ulen, Jay Ulen, Sam Evanoff, Sonny Haynes, Dena Cunningham, Brian Health, Michelle Ostrowski, Jetta Minerva, Jen Ransom, Tracy Foster, Josh Thompson, Lauri Lingafelt and Jim Fellman.

Jersey Subs receives applause for their continual support in feeding our hard-working volunteers. In addition, we thank parents and caregivers who took the time to bring their children to the event and all the efforts they take to keep their children safe. Have a safe and fun summer.
