OSWEGO, NY – EJ Construction Group out of Liverpool has continued its annual sponsorship of the SAFE Fair with an increase this year to the Gold Level.
Bonnie Caza is the office manager at EJ and volunteers for many community events.
“EJ Construction is proud to be a part of this annual event that continues to bring substance awareness to the youth of Oswego County. We look forward to this year’s event and encourage everyone to stop by the SAFE Fair on April 30. Substance abuse and addiction affect all of us and through events like this one we can make a difference!” Caza said.

There will be a presentation on anxiety by Miwa Burdic, health student at New Visions and a local singer/songwriter Erica Perwitz will perform a song she wrote.
Mystic Music Entertainment Services has games lined up for the youth.
Additional plans include carnival type games with prizes, activities at some of the participating exhibitors, a craft table with supplies for making a wooden bank, a stress reduction table with supplies for adult dot-to-dot and coloring activities.
Donations are being gathered for door prizes and raffle baskets, which are being designed by Meggan Gauger, a newly elected board member of the VOW Foundation.
Free face painting will be provided by volunteer Charlene Himple.
Teresa Woolson, president of VOW, said, “We hope families will enjoy the fun activities and learn more about this health epidemic of addiction and help stop the stigma and bring hope to the community. A lot of great things are happening to better our community with organizations coming together to collaborate and partner for events like this.”
The event is free and fun for all ages.
