Pedestrian and Driving Safety Workshop

By Armen Garabedian

GLENDALE, CA on Thursday, June 5, 2014, at 10 am, Armen Garabedian,
Community Service Officer will present a workshop on Pedestrian and
Driving Safety at the Glendale Central Library Auditorium, 222 East
Harvard Street in Glendale. The workshop is in Armenian. Admission is
free. Library visitors receive 3 hours FREE parking across the street
at The Market Place parking structure with validation at the Loan
Desk.

The Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Department has planned a series
of Survival Skills Workshops to inform and educate the Glendale
residents on all services and resources available at the City of
Glendale. Library, Arts & Culture and the Police Department has put
together a Pedestrian and Driving safety workshop. This first workshop
will focus on Pedestrian and Driving Safety. The purpose of this
workshop is to focus on older adults, and road safety issues, and to
provide adults with strategies for safer walking. According to
Glendale News-Press, “last year, five people lost their lives in
pedestrian-involved traffic collisions. Police have logged 14
pedestrian deaths – most of which have been seniors – between 2008 and
2013.” We strongly believe by educating and re-enforcing the rules
regarding road safety we can prevent the number of fatalities in
future. Therefore, we urge our community members and advocates to
participate and to bring ideas to improve walkability in our
community.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
