John Epstein (second from right), owner of East Side Mario’s in Orillia, along with office manager Rose Hurtubise (far left), presented representatives of the Kiwanis Children’s Safety Village with a cheque for more than $1,500 in proceeds from a recent fundraising event. The interactive village travels to area schools, where children learn how to live and play safely through hands-on displays, covering potential dangers ranging from electricity and fire to traffic. Also pictured are safety village representatives Korine Keyzer, Gerry Dwyer and Sandy Cobbe.
