Safety Town GraduationEUGENE, Ore. — Lots of smiles, but, no caps and gowns for this graduation ceremony.

More than a hundred pre-kindergarteners are the newest graduates of Safety Town.

During Friday’s ceremony, a record 128 kids demonstrated their new skills and knowledge.

Over the last two weeks, they learned all about bicycle, pedestrian, poison, fire, earthquake and water safety.

“Oh, it’s been a lot of fun, we’ve had a great time the last couple weeks here at Safety Town and the kids have learned really a lot,” said Debbie Janecek, Eugene Police Department Crime Prevention Unit Supervisor.

“You do the crime signal like this,” said 5-year-old Hailey Magnus.

Safety Town is supported through community donations and 25 teen volunteers that donated 80 hours of their own time.
