AAPS transportation staff was also there as well. Kind of missed the boat on this one. Otherwise, Safety Town has been around for over 30 years. I did a volunteer one summer and loved it. Would love to volunteer again if I ever get a free moment to do this. BTW Special Olympics is looking for volunteers to help at EMU Convocation Center starting August 3. Just a heads up. I will be out of town that weekend. Everything grand and I am out of town. Figures.
