CORE Community School Assists Safe Kids Cherokee County

September 15, 2017

Approximately 20 students from CORE Community School arrived at the Cherokee County Administrative Offices today to assist Safe Kids Cherokee by stuffing bags with important safety tips that will be given to attendees at the Riverfest Arts and Crafts Festival that is planned for next weekend, September 23rd and 24th, Etowah River Park in Canton, Georgia.

Pennie Lamanac, a Fire and Life Safety Instructor for Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services and a volunteer for Safe Kids, thanked the students for donating their time to help with the worthy cause. Students spent Friday morning working on an assembly line to get the bags stuffed with numerous pamphlets and brochures regarding safety.
