Community members will have a chance to celebrate kids, prevent injuries and save lives as they get a glimpse of the new, expanded Southlake YMCA during the Safe Kids Day event from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 27, 2019.

The annual event will take place in the new gymnasium of the Dean and Barbara White Southlake YMCA at 1450 S. Court St. in Crown Point. It will feature games, activities, giveaways, refreshments and children’s services, including child ID cards issued by the Lake County Sheriff’s Department, dental care, along with information about Crown Point Public library programs and summer camp programs sponsored by the YMCA.

“This is a fun and engaging event for families to learn about keeping those they love safe and a great example of agencies working together to improve the overall health of the community,” said Jennifer Homan, trauma coordinator at Franciscan Health Crown Point.

Safety demonstrations will include bicycle and helmet safety, child passenger safety, fire safety, home safety, medication safety, pedestrian safety, pet safety and water safety. Franciscan Physician Network pediatrician Samuel S. Khairkar, MD, will be on hand to answer healthcare questions.

Entertainment will include Rockin’ With Leonardo, an interactive concert of music and movement, and BeeGiggles providing face painting, temporary tattoos, balloon twisting and magic.

This is a free event, but registration is required. Register online at FranciscanHealth.org/SafeKidsDayNWI or by calling (800) 931-3322.

The Safe Kids Day event is a project of Safe Kids Northwest Indiana. This event is sponsored by Franciscan Health Crown Point, Southlake YMCA, the Crown Point Community Foundation and ArcelorMittal.
