Car seat checks at hospital postponed until spring
As of Dec. 1, 2012, Safe Kids is temporarily postponing the car seat check events held on the first Wednesday of each month at Aspirus Wausau Hospital until April 2013. This temporary change is to accomodate a construction project that will be taking place at Aspirus Wausau Hospital. The events held on the third Wednesday of each month at Yach's Body and Custom in Wausau will continue as planned.
