Published May 10. 2012 05:01PM

Are you looking for something to do over Memorial Day Weekend?

The GFWC Western Pocono Women's Club, a service organization in the West End for 40 years, is co-sponsoring a FREE Child Safety Fair with the West End Park and Open Space Commission. This event will take place on Saturday, May 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Chestnuthill Township Park on Rte. 715 in Brodheadsville.

Stop by and have the PA State Police fingerprint your child, as well as check your child's car seat. Pocono Medical Center will provide some useful information. The West End Ambulance and West End Fire Company will be present for you to tour their vehicles and trucks. A Fire Safety House or simulated "Smoke House" from Tobyhanna Army Depot will be available to demonstrate safe ways to escape a house fire.

To determine the safety of your child's bike, a representative from The Loft in Tannersville will be there only from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for bike inspections. Bring your bikes to be sure they are safe for riding. Information for the 911 Address ID Signs will also be available inside the township building. There will be free literature as well.

Food and beverages will be sold by Boy Scout Troop 98.

Free information regarding bike safety, car seats, school bus safety, etc. will be available inside the Chestnuthill Park Building during the Child Safety Fair.

If you have any questions, please email the Western Pocono Women's Club at

WPWC president Vicki Connor says, "Please, come join us."
