Over 275 children at EPIC’s Jefferson Early Learning Center, 902 E. Viola, will have many visitors on Thursday March 24, 2011 teaching them how to be safe at home, at school and when they are outdoors.

EPIC’s 4th Annual Safety Fair will be held in two sessions; 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. This event brings together several community agencies, businesses, and organizations to give the children an opportunity to meet and have hands-on experiences with them; giving them a better understanding of how they help the children, their families and friends every day of their lives.
