The Broome County Sheriff’s Office Child-Safe Identification Program, Drive-Thru Safety Seat inspections and on the spot helmet checks will be available. Community agencies that serve the families and children in our area will be on hand with information and to answer questions. Every child attending will receive a free book donated from Penguin Books.
