Healthy Kids and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department will hold a gun safety event on Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. to noon at the American Legion Hall, 527 Main St. Damariscotta. According to the National Rifle Association, “Safety is not only critical in handling firearms but in everyday life.” Learning the rules of gun ownership and gun safety is imperative in keeping children, families and community members safe.

All attendees of the event will be able to look at a variety of gun storage lockers, receive a bag with a free gun lock, gun safety and new Maine Gun Law information, have a chance to win a $100 LL Bean gift card, and talk briefly with the Sheriff’s and Healthy Kids staff. All gun owners are welcome to stop by.

The event will follow Maine CDC Covid Safe guidelines. For more information call 563-1818.
