Students from in the East Meadow School District handed out boating safety materials on a boat ramp at this past Satuirday to honor their classmate .
Treanor on July 4 when the boat she was on capsized in Oyster Bay.
The students in the school's K-Kids program told the East Meadow Herald that many boaters on the Wantagh waters accepted their brochures and offered their condolences.
“We simply want to help reduce the chance that a boating accident will cause others to endure the sadness and loss that we feel over Harlie’s death,” said Rich Santer, the Bowling Green K-Kids advisor.
Santer told the Herald that the project taught the children that they can turn grief into a positive action.
