Sunday cartoon: Buckle Up America safety campaign


BURRILLVILLE – The Buckleupallofus Buckle Up America Month safety campaign is now underway here in the state of Rhode Island and across New England. In fact, it’s nationwide.

Every month, during the month of May, a variety of car seat check ups and traffic safety days take place at grade schools, libraries, shopping plazas, malls, church parking lots and retailers across the USA, trying to insure that little kids are safer properly restrained in car seats.

Buckleupallofus take home child passenger safety coloring posters are distributed to kids and families from coast-to-coast during the month. They will also be available beginning this month at the weekly cruise night hosted by the Rhode Island Chevy Owners Association every Friday in the parking lot directly adjacent to McDonald’s located on Mendon Road in Cumberland. Their opening cruise night is this coming Friday, May 6, weather permitting.

This long time Friday cruise night helps raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House in Providence. Their slogan is “Keeping Families Close.” My good friend, Cruisin’ Bruce Palmer, plays a great song selection from the 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s for everyone showcasing their classic cars and trucks, along with the hundreds of spectators that attend this popular automotive event week after week during the cruisin’ season. The vehicles illustrated on their Bucky kids safety coloring posters are actually owned by a few of the club members. You can now color them in at your leisure because it’s this week’s Sunday Safety Cartoon.

Please help support the Ronald McDonald House Charity Cruise Night this year, and join everyone for a lot of fun, classic vehicles, friends, good food and great oldies music. Take the kids. They will love and enjoy this weekly cruise night too. And remember; Buckle Up All of Us!
