Hanover Girl Scouts host Community Safety Day

Girl Scouts from the Hanover Service Unit are excited to invite the public to their upcoming Community Safety Day Saturday, May 17 from 10 a.m. to noon, at New Highland Baptist Church, 9200 New Ashcake Road, Mechanicsville.

Rain or shine, the Girl Scouts will introduce children to and re-familiarize adults with sun safety advice and bike riding do’s and don’ts. Vendors and community partners include the Hanover Sheriff’s Office, Hanover Fire and EMS, Henrico Doctors’ Hospital, and Virginia Department of Emergency Management. They will present safety demonstrations and hand out useful information and giveaways, including kid ID and first-aid kits, hurricane preparedness tips, “Take a Bite Out of Crime” with McGruff the Crime Dog, and a “climb aboard” a real fire engine.

For more information, contact Theresa Henderson at (804) 746-0590, ext.324, thenderson@comgirlscouts.org.
