The event will be held on September 30th at the northeast corner of the Holt Arena parking lot from 10am until 1pm.

Each student will able to provide much needed safety information and corrections for several senior citizens. Each session will be 20 minutes long. During this time, ISU students comfort everyone by learning how to use their safety devices.
