Saturday’s second annual Children and Youth Health and Safety Expo at the Academies of Discovery Gym in Oakwood featured safety tips from organizations like American Red Cross, Expanded Food And Nutrition Education Program and Hall County Fire Services. Those tips included fire prevention and what to do in a fire, healthier eating habits and health plans for families. Organizer and American Legion Post 328 Commander Stephen McGruder said the Flowery Branch post wants to help educate and be a “positive force” with youth on health and safety topics despite a slim turnout Saturday.
