The seats will be looked at by a certified car seat technician, who will also provide instruction and guidance on installation and child passenger safety.

The event is running until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the barracks on Liberty Street.

In Holyoke, Gary Rome Hyundai continued to celebrate its 25th anniversary by making a donation to Rays of Hope.

The winner of an in-house employee raffle chose Rays of Hope as the recipient of Tuesday’s donation.

Gary Rome Hyundai has been a longtime supporter of Rays of Hope, which includes their ‘Drive Pink’ campaign, which has raised $25,000 for the organization since 2018.
