The first annual Safe Kids Day Fair was held Saturday at the Whitney Commons Park and YMCA. A collaborative effort which brought in over 30 informational booths set up with activities geared towards kids, Executive Director of Sheridan’s Wellness Council, Teddy Araas explained what it was all about.

Safety was the word of the day as participants could join in activities such as water, sitter, fire arm, hand washing, and technology safety. And then there was camping, hiking, rail road, and pedestrian safety among others.

A big hit was the booth set up for pet safety with “Howard,” a standard-sized black poodle brought in by dog tutor Barb Walseth.

Deanna Wojtczak was there with her two girls. With the mountains that surround Sheridan she said there was a lot of information that her kids could use.

The kids had the opportunity to win a Nintendo, a bike, or a backpack in a drawing at the end of the event.
