Sparkles and I can't wait to visit the students at Celia Clinton Elementary in Tulsa, Oklahoma this coming Monday!
After doing two presentations, Sparkles and I will be on hand to sign books for the children at the school.
Here's the press release:
Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog to Visit Celia Clinton
11/24/2008, 9:00 a.m.
CELIA CLINTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Students at Celia Clinton Elementary are set to seriously bone up on their knowledge of fire safety when Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog makes a presentation at their school.
If you’re not familiar with Sparkles — she’s quite the canine. (How many dogs do you know that have their own website?) Here’s a bit of a bio from that site (www.sparklesthefiresafetydog.com): “One of my favorite things is to help firefighters teach fire safety. I love helping show children, just like you, how to crawl low under smoke. I also love to ride on fire trucks. It is so much fun!”
Sparkles and her handler, firefighter Dayna Hilton, are delivering a series of presentations at Celia Clinton, the first at a 9:30 a.m. assembly on Monday, November 24.
The Rotary Club of Tulsa is helping to facilitate Sparkles’ visit. The Tulsa Fire Department will have a fire truck on hand.
