Cabot Academy students receive helmets
The North Shore Central Ambulance Co-op, in association with local businesses and community supporters, recently presented some 30 students in Kindergarten and Grade 1 at Cabot Academy, Western Bay with new bicycle hel- mets. The intent was to teach young children the importance of wearing a bicycle helmet. Because of the strong support of area businesss and organizations, the program was expanded. Initially, organizers had planned to donate “lids” to just the Kindergartens. In addition, draws were also held for a lucky student in Grades 2-6 to receive a new helmet. The initiative was timely, since a local youth was injured and hospitalized recenty following a bicycle mishap.
