The Sequim Police Department puts on a Helmet Safety Clinic for bicyclists and skateboarders from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Trinity United Methodist Church parking lot, at 100 Blake Ave.
The police department has purchased 30 skateboard helmets and 72 bicycle helmets through a $700 grant awarded by the Local Living Program though the Walmart Foundation. The helmets will be available for free to children 18 years of age or younger and developmentally disabled adults who live within the Sequim School District boundaries and are in need of a helmet.
The helmets were purchased through Helmets R Us, a Tacoma nonprofit company that supplies quality helmets that meet the highest safety standards at affordable prices to schools and community organizations.
Residents are encouraged to bring in their helmets for inspection and proper fit by a police officer. A complimentary barbecue lunch is hosted by the Trinity United Methodist Church.
