Marlborough, MA, (May 15, 2013) –Marlborough Hospital’s 15th annual Safe Summer Fun Day will be held on Saturday, June 8th from 10 am to 2 pm. This free, child-oriented health and safety event will take place on the front lawn of Marlborough Hospital at 157 Union Street, Marlborough, and will be held rain or shine.
Back by popular demand will be the hospital-sponsored bike helmet fitting where trained Marlborough Hospital staff will properly fit and give away children’s bicycle helmets, while supplies last. For adults who wish to be fitted, a $10 donation is requested.
The event will feature many hands-on hospital exhibits including: healthy eating, “doctor dress up,” sun exposure screenings, heart health, and germ prevention. Local fire, ambulance and police will also be at the event to promote summer safety for kids and their families. The UMass Memorial Health Care Life Flight air ambulance is scheduled to arrive between 11 am and noon.
The day will also feature fun, family-oriented activities such as an obstacle course, a trackless train, balloon animals, games, and contests. A DJ will be on hand to provide fun and family-appropriate music throughout the afternoon. Tours of fire trucks and ambulances are also planned. A barbecue provided by the Rotary Club of Marlborough will be available for a nominal cost.
Marlborough Hospital would like to give a special “thank you” to the Marlborough Eagles #3565 who are this year’s Safe Summer Fun Day Premier Sponsor. “The Eagles have been an avid supporter of this event for many years and are always willing to lend a helping hand,” said Ellen Carlucci, Vice President of Development, Marketing and Communications at Marlborough Hospital. “We are very fortunate to have them as a part of our community and a sponsor for this special event.”
