Crossing guards shepherd us safely across the street. They keep children safe from traffic throughout the year–no matter the conditions: wind, rain, snow or sweltering heat.

Since 2005, the State of Illinois has been officially honoring these individuals with Crossing Guard Appreciation Day. This year, the event takes place tomorrow, May 3, 2011. 

The Active Transportation Alliance invites everyone throughout Chicagoland to participate. Here are a few ideas for honoring your local crossing guard.

Visit www.activetrans.org/crossingguard to read comments people made about their favorite crossing guards in 2009 and 2010.
