84 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Aug. 8 - Aug. 14, 2003 Safe Kids Day set Aug. 13 at UD Research & Education Center Children will be the VIPs at this year's Sussex County Safe Kids Day. The theme for this event, which will be from 9 a.m. to noon, Wednesday, Aug. 13, at the Uni- versity of Delaware's Research & Education Center on Route 9, Georgetown, is Summer Safety. The program is designed to help parents and caregivers in keeping their young children safe, and is sponsored by the Delaware Safe Kids Coalition in cooperation with the University of Delaware, Sussex County Council and area businesses. This year's emphasis identifies risks associated with popular summer activities and the unfortu- nate escalating number of recre- ational and sports-related activi- ties. Parents and children think of summer as the season for fun and relaxation, but emergency room doctors know it as trauma season. In fact, children will be rushed to emergency rooms nearly 3 million times this summer. To help kids learn to play safe, the 2003 Sussex County Safe Kids Day will focus on bicycles, scooters, motor vehicles, all-ter- rain vehicles, water safety and many other fun activities that can cause injuries. The fun and educational festival on childhood injury prevention will include many interactive ex- hibits and demonstrations, plus costumed characters, a storyteller, face painting, fingerpainting, little train rides, a petting zoo, car seat check and more. Entertainment will feature 4-H Pot The 12th annual Long Neck Health Fair, known as Health Day by the Bay, will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 14, at the Pot Nets Beach, Pot Nets Bay- side - rain or shine.
