OPERATION SAVE A LIFE DIRECTOR'S REPORT
Mother nature is playing tricks on us again. While I was writing this article, the evening temperatures were predicted to drop to the 30’s overnight. By the time, you read this the OSAL classes will be winding down. The OSAL teams were out in full force.
Peggy Snyder and her team from Blair County Chapter had a presentation at Claysburg High School, and the teacher was extremely pleased. Dave Mentzer and his crew from Indiana County Chapter had classes in Homer City and the Open Door-Insight Class. Harry Shimko and the Blue Mountain team presented to Mechanicsburg High School and Cedar Cliff High School. The Mason-Dixon team visited Northeastern, New Oxford, Spring Grove, Southwestern, Gettysburg, Waynesboro, Dover and Delone Catholic High Schools. This is for a total of 865 plus or minus.
I know Highlanders have also presented to some schools and I am waiting on their reports. All the teachers gave rave reviews about the presentation. Keep up the good work and keep those reports coming. Not only from you but from the schools. They are important to help us improve the program.
Mason-Dixon also attended York/Adams Safe Driving Competition at Southwestern High School, this program is sponsored by various organizations and we have been invited for two years. The students compete for prize money for scholarships. We networked with all the schools and picked up another school to present the OSAL program to.
On the state side, I attended the PENN-DOT State Traffic Safety Conference in State College in April. I was invited to participate in a round table discussion about different ways to partner with other organizations for traffic safety. I have received business cards from different groups who have extended offers to help us get into new schools.
I would also like to remind District Reps and Presidents that I would like to have a District OSAL representative in each District. This will help with communications and make it easier for presenters to get their questions answered quicker.
Remember, if you need help getting your chapter started please feel free to contact me. I will do all I can do.
Also, the LFRA/PennDOT program at the Farm Show will be held on July 8 from 11:00 AM until 5:00. Look for details and posters throughout the state. Meanwhile “Look Twice-Save A Life”
