EVANSDALE (KWWL) -

A safety event in memory of Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook was put on today. 

The cousins were abducted near Meyers Lake in Evansdale five years ago.

Community leaders taught parents and children about safety.

Bill VanWey, a Countryside Vineyard Church Pastor, had a chance to talk specifically about bike safety. His main goal was to remind youngsters to tell their parents where they're going. He also reflected on the Evansdale community. 

"You know when the girls were lost everybody participated in searching for them, I think that's what Evansdale is about it's just a community that cares for it's people and we just want to be apart of that so we are just joining in with them."
