Rumford Eagles 2017 Child Advocacy Day

 The Rumford Eagles will be holding a Child Advocacy Day and fund raiser for our area youth Saturday, May 20th , 2017, 11:30 am till 4 pm

Promoting and instilling quality community values in our youth is something the Eagles stands behind. Each year, the Rumford Eagles hold a Child Advocacy Day that teaches area youth & parents about safety, protection, prevention and other health and welfare activities. The goal is to bring together communities outlets such as, police departments, fire departments, medical, schools and community organizations to help promote safe living. We are looking for interested groups to set up booths that can offer info on content such as bullying, internet safety, sex abuse, dangers of smoking, nutrition, gun safety, drug abuse, health and any other subject that can benefit the health and well being of our youth. Listed below is a partial listing of what will be offered at our event.

Child Advocacy Day

Aeries and auxiliaries are encouraged to host a Child Advocacy Day on May 1 of each year. This program is supported by the Grand Aerie and works to recognize the efforts local members put forth to honor youth of their communities.

Child Advocacy Day is a fun day for youth to enjoy and the community to educate and protect their children. The aerie and auxiliary schedule programs around safety, protection, prevention and other health and welfare activities. Events of the day may include fire safety in conjunction with the local fire department, DARE and other programs supported by the local police department, and finger printing, public and internet safety programs supported by other officials.

May 1 was selected Child Advocacy Day in honor of Past Grand Worthy President Edward F. Poss's claim that May 1 be recognized as Child Health Day in all aeries and auxiliaries. If May 1 is not available, child advocacy events held on any day between August 1 of the previous year and May 31 of the current year are still eligible for the competition.
