Shortly before the summer vacation, on Thursday, June 11, the entire school population of Calmar Elementary was the recipient of lifesaving safety lessons, presented by Luree Williamson (CEO), Kaley Segboer and Sarah Linde, dynamic members of Ag For Life and several of their participating sponsors, such as Red Cross and Rocky Mountain Equipment.
Calmar Elementary principal Luc Lavigne recognized the value of this safety presentation and rushed to bring AG For Life to his school. Students seemed happy and fascinated with the interactive lessons covering the dangers around farm machinery and off-road vehicles, safety in and near water, various farm hazards, household chemicals awareness… Engaging, fun talks and interesting story accessories were popular with all the students.
Rural kids and urban visitors to grand-parents’ farm will equally benefit from these safety lessons. With the support of corporate sponsors, Ag For Life is planning for another busy year and is now working on expanding its adult programs, a concept that has already proven valuable for groups such as community events and rural women’s conferences.
