Why to Attend the Touch a Truck Safety Fair this Month in Jerome
Keeping our children safe is a top priority and teaching them safety isn't always the easiest to do. We can tell them to not do things, panic, and yell at them when they are in danger, or we can find an alternative route. There is an event coming to the Twin Falls area that will teach kids safety, but in a way that they will enjoy learning, and may not even realize that they are getting an education.
