Area Elementary Students Invited to Participate in Coloring Contest
DAYTON, OHIO—May 8, 2008 Miami Valley South Health Center (MVSHC) and two branches of the Washington-Centerville Library are teaming up to hold a children’s coloring contest. Between May 18 and 24 coloring forms can be picked at Centerville Library, 111 W. Spring Valley Rd., or Woodbourne Library, 6060 Far Hills Ave. The coloring contest is being held to celebrate Emergency Medical Services Week.
Any student in preschool through fifth grade can enter. A winner from each grade will be selected. Winners will receive a $10 gift certificate to a local bookstore and will be invited to a special tour on MVSHV on June 6. Students will be coloring a picture of “Abby” the mascot of the children’s area at MVSHC.
“Because we are new to the area, we feel becoming involved with community activities such as the coloring contest is a way to introduce ourselves to families who might need health services offered at our facility,” says Joann Ringer, Administrator of MVSHC.
Library patrons can help kick off Emergency Medical Services Week on Sunday, May 18 when both libraries host guests from the Washington Township Fire Department and Miami Valley Hospital’s Mobile Intensive Care Unit. Personnel from both units will be on hand to offer sneak peeks of equipment they use to fight fires and rescue victims from accidents. Stop by the Centerville Library between 1 and 2 p.m. or the Woodbourne Library between 3 and 4 p.m.
