Earth Day is Wednedsay, April 22 and in recognition, the Kennesaw Police Department is partnering with Safe Kids Cobb County to encourage parents to discard old car seats. All car seats have an expiration date that can be found on the manufacturer’s label; if an exact date isn’t listed, the general rule is 6 years from manufacture. Seats used after their expiration date may not be safe or function properly in a crash.
Expired or old seats involved in an accident should never be reused or resold. Make plans to turn in your old car seat at the KPD, 2529 J.O. Stephenson Ave, from 9 am – 4 pm on Wednesday, April 22.
Make the most of your child’s summer! Local providers will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about summer camp offerings. Over two dozen unique programs will be represented in activities ranging from dance, gymnastics and soccer to LEGO® engineering and fine arts. A discount will be offered for registration accepted on-site during the event.
The “Aging by Design” Summit provides older adults and caregivers information needed to examine how they choose to live and to plan for the future. It will explore specific challenges facing our aging population and offer feasible, practical recommendations that should be useful to older adults and those who care for loved ones. Participants will gain insightful information relevant to transportation, health and wellness and much more. The goal is to help older adults, service providers, caregivers and family members rethink the ways we talk about aging and re-imagine a new future that puts people and their most fundamental needs and desires at the center of the discussion.
The program will feature premier speakers from WellStar, Uber, Georgia Tech and other well respected regional and national organizations. The 2015 Summit also includes an Expo with more than 70 vendors. This is a timely program and experience that will benefit an important and growing population in Cobb County.

Work session begins at 6:30 pm, followed by 7 pm regular meeting.
