Reflection of a father-son moment

Darrin Patterson of Salem gives his son, 4-year-old Darrick, a close-up view of a STATMedEvac helicopter that flew in from Wintersville Saturday to be part of the Salem?Home Depot’s safety day. The youth-oriented event featured many participatory activities for children. On hand were representatives from area fire departments, the Highway Patrol and ambulance services. The children received many fun and informative handouts and the Salem Elks distributed free smoke alarms. (Salem News photo by J.D. Creer)
