A Bicycle Safety Rodeo will take place from 9-11 a.m. on Saturday, June 7, in the south east parking lot at the corner of 4th and Elm. Free helmets will be given as well as a chance to win a bike. Participants are asked to bring their own bicycle as they will not be provided in order for participation. This is a great opportunity for children to be able to learn bicycle safety by riding through obstacle courses. There will also be stations to check the bikes and provide air for tires or replace tubes if necessary. Another station will be set up to fingerprint children. For further information, contact Doug or Brandi Sitter at 235-0018.
