Blast from the Past
Were you a safety patrol? Do remember the dos and don'ts for the safety patrol trip to Washington, DC on March 27-30, 1970? Do you remember you had to take a laxative 2 days before the trip? Do you remember you couldn't wear brand new shoes? Do you remember how many doctors went on the trip? Do you remember the cost? Click on the following LINKS to read Eric Hancock's (THS 75) collection of informative notices that were sent out to safety patrol parents:
"All pertinent information about the annual patrol trip to
Washington and New York is contained in these pages."
"It is suggested by the nurses making this trip with us, that
IN ORDER FOR YOUR CHILD TO RECEIVE FULL ENJOYMENT FROM THE TRIP,
HE BE GIVEN A LAXATIVE TWO DAYS BEFORE LEAVING FOR THE TRIP."
"There will be four doctors and four nurses making this trip
with us to assist with any child who may become ill."
"Please be there to pick up your child as all of the
children will be tired from the overnight ride."
