AVON LAKE — Hundreds attended the ninth annual Child Safe Community Day Fair at Troy Intermediate School on Sunday afternoon.

The fair hosted by the North Coast Rotary Club and Jeff Ellis’ International Karate Centers offered a mix of family-friendly fun and safety information.

Ellis, who organized the event, said the free fair aims to help the community.

“It’s all about providing parents with important and valuable information and resources to help keep their children safe and healthy wherever they are,” he said.

Among the activities for families were a bounce house, face painting, games, pictures with the Easter Bunny and an Easter egg hunt.

Ellis led a stranger danger awareness program, as well as a martial arts demonstration. Several other organizations, agencies and businesses also attended, including Avon Lake fire and police departments, Lorain County Metro Parks, Jack and Jill Nursery, Liberty Mutual Insurance and Miss Kristin’s Dance Studio.

Also available at the fair were child identification kits that include an emergency medical release card, fingerprints and a personal description record with photo that parents can update regularly.
