“Safety Town” is a program that has successfully taught safety skills to children nationwide since the 1930’s. “We are pleased to be able to bring this valuable program to the children of Clearcreek Township and Springboro” said Chief Terrill. “We have worked in conjunction with our partners to bring a quality program that will teach our children valuable lessons that will help keep them safe for years to come. We also would like to thank our area sponsors that are helping to make this possible: the Springboro Rotary Club, the Loeb Foundation, Sandy’s Towing, the Warren County Drug Task Force, Simpkins-Foley Insurance and Lebanon Correctional Institution. The Clearcreek Township Safety Town will begin weekly sessions on June 8th and will continue through July 20th.
