For Antigo Times
Tuesday night the Antigo Fire Department held their annual latch key graduation at the AHS Volm Theatre for all 3rd graders in the Antigo School District. Raffle prizes were given away after the graduation, which included the grand prize of a bicycle. The winner of the bicycle was Luke Bastle from All Saints Catholic School.
Latch key is a program that allows the fire department to teach safety lessons to 3rd Graders who may have to go home to an empty house while their parents are working. The department teaches them how to be safe inside and outside the home. They teach the kids car safety, bike safety, swift water safety, gun safety and other safety lessons.
