Marlborough – Marlborough Hospital, with support from DCU Kids and the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 3565, presented Safe Summer Fun Day June 7 at the hospital campus. The event featured lots of safe and fun activities for kids including inflatables, doctor dress-up, and raffled toys and bikes all day.

The event is run to bring awareness about using safe practices when having fun in the summer, including wearing a helmet when biking, washing hands, wearing sunscreen and more. Members of public safety were there to show off their trucks, including the Marlborough K-9 unit, ambulances, and a fire truck.

The biggest draw of the event was the free bike helmet fitting and giveaway for all the kids that attended.
