EVANSDALE (KWWL) -

The Angels Memorial Park Committee will be hosting a Child Safety Awareness Day this weekend. It will take place at Evansdale's Community Resource Center on July 9th. 

The event comes just just days before the fifth anniversary of the abduction of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins. On July 13th the two cousins went missing near Meyers Lake in Evansdale. Nearly five months later their bodies were found at Seven Bridges Park in Bremer County.

Meyers Lake was later turned into a beautiful park, Angels Park. The Child Safety Awareness Day was at the park in years past, but this year it has been moved to Evansdale's Community Resource Center.
