Letter: A thank you from the Elburn Leos

By on August 22, 2013

On Aug. 5-6, the Elburn Leo Club hosted their first Safety Camp for kids. Over the two-day camp, the 34 participants learned about fire, weather, railroad, firearm, bicycle and roller skating safety. The topics of basic first aid, 911, stranger danger, decision making and drug and bullying awareness were also covered.

The Elburn Leos would like to thank the following organizations for their participation: Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District, ECFPD Explorer Post, Elburn Police Department, Kane County Sheriff’s Department, Kane County Office of Emergency Management, Operation Lifesaver, Delnor/Cadence Health, DeKalb 911 Dispatch, DeKalb’s Barbed Wire Betties, the Rockford Rage and the Rockford Ragdolls.

The Leos would also like to thank the community volunteers who stepped up to help and the Elburn Lions Club for their continued support. We are looking forward to many more camps in the future.
