For immediate release - July 28, 2005
TAVARES — The Lake County Community Traffic Safety Team (CTST) would like to remind Lake County residents of the 2005 Back-to-School Safety Fair scheduled on Saturday, July 30, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Lake Square Mall, 10401 U.S. Highway 441, Leesburg.
An annual event, the safety fair provides families an opportunity to prepare for the school year by offering several important safety programs including bicycle and helmet safety, a child seat safety checkpoint, free school immunizations, child identification and other safety displays and demonstrations.
Along with the safety demonstrations, children can meet “Sir Gus” the kissing camel or experience a rock climbing wall. The safety fair is hosted in cooperation with the Lake County Department of Public Works, law enforcement agencies and Lake Square Mall and is sponsored by Lake Nissan and the 18th Masonic District.
Last year, about 1,600 residents turned out for the safety fair. The 2005 event coincides with the State of Florida’s back-to-school tax free holiday week prior to the start of the new school year.
For more information about the 2005 Back-to-School Safety Fair, call Noble Olasimbo, Chairman of the CTST, at 352-253-4986.
