Water Safety Event with Grand Traverse 4-H. Plus, free lunch!

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Northern Michigan Water Safety Event! This summer 4-H has a unique way to give back to our community through a free Water Safety Event happening on Wednesday, July 19th from 10 am-1 pm at the Bayside Park in Acme on East Bay. Join us for water safety games, valuable information from local organizations, Coast Guard fly over and/or demonstrations, free hot dog lunch, prizes and more! Grand Traverse County 4-H Leader’s Assn. felt it was important to provide this water safety event to the community as a way to serve children and families in our area. When talking with Grand Traverse Metro Fire employee Jenn Ritter, she said, “Over the June 9-11 weekend there were 5 accidental drownings in Michigan, three in the north region! This is why we need to educate kids and adults alike!” Organizations participating include GT Metro File, GT Sheriff Marine Division, Coast Guard, SafeKids North Shore, 4-H and more!
