Two state lawmakers from Lake County will host a health and safety fair for children on Saturday, Sept. 21.

State Rep. Ed Sullivan and state Sen. Dan Duffy will co-host the event, which will run from 9 a.m. to noon at Lake Zurich Middle School North, 95 Hubbard Lane, Hawthorn Woods.

"As a father of two young children, I understand how important it is to engage parents with activities and opportunities to enhance their health, safety and overall quality of life," Sullivan said. "This is a fun and informative event for the whole family, and I hope to see many area families there."

Sullivan is a Mundelein Republican. Duffy is a Barrington Republican. They regularly campaign and appear at functions together.

More than 30 groups will participate. Admission is free.

Children will also have an opportunity to touch more than 17 kinds of trucks at the event, including police and fire vehicles.

"The school year is upon us and it is important that children are reminded how to be safe when traveling to and from school and at their after-school activities," Sullivan said.
