We're not fooling: Optimists offer Lawnmower Safety Program

Optimist Clubs help keep children safe. They offer bicycle rodeos, internet safety awareness, personal safety demonstrations and now ... a program to teach Lawnmower Safety!

How awesome is that? Lawnmower safety, just in time for the spring season, as entrepreneurial youngsters begin to line up their summer lawn mowing clients. It's a free clinic, aimed at 5th through 8th graders, that teaches lawn mower maintenance as well as mower and trimmer safety.

As a bonus, all participants are entered in a drawing to win a new gas powered trimmer.

The Lawnmower Safety Program is coordinated by the Optimist Club of W. Knoxville, Tennessee and the University of Tennessee Extension Service and will be held on April 9. Parents or an adult must attend with the participant. If you live in or near Farragut, find out how to register here.
