Safety patrol students rewarded with fun day at Action City

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Area students who strive to keep their classmates safe were honored Friday during the Safety Patrol picnic.

The annual ceremony brought more than 600 safety patrollers to Action City, giving them a chance to play games, eat food and have fun as a reward for their hard work.

These students are the ones who make sure your kids can safely cross to and from school.

Organizers say the Eau Claire Police Department wanted to make sure all of the patrollers got recognition this year.

“Instead of bringing 17 kids down to the dells rewarding just the top patrollers, they wanted to reward all of the patrollers that came down here,” said general manager of Metropolis Resort, Benny Anderson.

The space was donated by Metropolis Resort and food was donated by the Western Wisconsin Building and Construction Trades Council.
