School crossing guards are the unsung heroes of our community – but one local official has recognized their hard work every year.
Assemblyman Mike Miller hosted his ninth annual 104th Precinct School Crossing Guard event at the Greater Ridgewood Youth Council.
“School crossing guards put their lives on the line each day to protect pedestrians, especially our children, in the mornings and afternoon during school arrival and dismissal times,” Miller says.
“They work in all types of weather conditions and are the eyes and ears on our busy streets and sidewalks.”
The next time you encounter your local crossing guard, stop to thank them!
