During March, the Crellin Community took part in the Garrett County Health Department’s Remove the Risk Campaign, which focuses on education about the dangers of accidental poisoning or overdose of children from improperly stored or monitored medications. Crellin Elementary School continued the theme, with school nurse Megan Corby conducting a medication safety lesson for all students. Families signed pledges to “Remove the Risk” in their homes by agreeing to secure and monitor prescription drugs, and properly disposing of medication when no longer needed. The pledges were used as a prize drawing for a tandem, inflatable kayak. Pictured above at left is winner Ryann Gank, with her daughters RayLynn, Regina, and Elleanor, receiving the prize from Crellin Outreach Partnerships volunteer Shannon Baker. Students at the elementary school were also treated to an Easter egg hunt provided by the Crellin Outreach Partnerships and school staff. Pictured below is Dani Hughes holding her bag of goodies.
