Safety program makes a lasting imprint

February 22, 1997

More than 100 youngsters are safer today after a Saturday's Hagerstown Kidcare ID program at K-Mart in the Valley Plaza.

"I'm doing it for protection - just to be on the safe side,'' said Angie New as she stood in line with her 3-month-old son, Tyler.

Lauran Barrett, 2 1/2, was initially hesitant but got braver watching big brother Ryan go through the paces without fear.

"It's for safetyI sake,'' said Lauran's mom, Lisa Barrett.

Ann Shryock, community development vice president for the Jaycees of Hagerstown, called turnout for the six-hour program terrific.

The free program provided parents with fingerprint cards, an updated picture history of their children and other important information, mainly in case their children should be lost or missing.

Washington County Sheriff's Deputies Jeff Cooper and Eric Byers handled the fingerprinting duties. Halfway Volunteer Fire Company personnel offered tips on fire safety.
