We had a good weekend. We sponsor the 51’s and this last weekend was Big League Weekend at Cashman Field. Our accomplished BDC rep Chris Silva brought a car, answered a lot of questions and watched as the Texas Rangers powered over the Chicago Cubs 8-5 in front of almost 9,000 cheering St. Patrick’s Day fans.
This weekend is going to be big – and I mean BIG! On Saturday, the 23rd, from 9am until 1pm, we are having our Spring Event!!!
Shred-It will be here for a free document shred. You can bring your private papers in and they will be shredded for FREE. It doesn’t matter if it’s 1 folder or 3 boxes of papers – they will shred it all for you. Safety first!
Speaking about safety…the Cub Scouts will be here earning their Automotive Safety Badges. This will be comprised of 5 components:
- Spot the Tot. This program teaches adults to do a complete walk around any vehicle to look for children, toys or pets before opening the door and starting the engine. It makes adults aware of dangers to children in driveways and parking lots.
- Never Leave Your Child Alone. Through NLYCA, Safe Kids teaches adults to take children with them whenever they leave the vehicle, even for short periods of time.
- Trunk entrapment. The trunk entrapment activities and messages teach adults and kids to use trunks only for cargo-never as a play area. They also demonstrate how to safely use the new trunk release handle found on all new cars since MY 2001.
- Safety Belt fit test. Parents are to see how a correctly fitted seat belt should fit their child
- Safety features of the vehicle. Findlay Chevrolet staff speaks to the children about the safety features of the vehicle such as air bags and children learn about the Onstar system.
A parent must be present and there is no charge for this event.
United Blood Services will be here with a blood drive. If you can give, please do as our blood bank is running low. If the “feel good” you get from helping your community is not enough – all donors will receive a voucher for two admissions to see The Australian Bee Gee’s show at the Excalibur!
And to top it off we are going to have a “world class” FREE Bar-B-Q. The Bar-B-Q is from 11am-1pm so don’t forget to stop by and eat!
If you have any questions, please call my good friend and Widget Manager Doug Fleming at 702.743.4793!
See you there!
