Elks #1248 Annual Bike Rodeo

Elks #1248 of Three Rivers, MI held their 8th annual bicycle rodeo on Saturday, June 17, 2023.

From Kim Adams, PER 

The 8th Annual Bicycle Rodeo was a success!
We had 126 children, and their parents attend the event, which was made possible by the Beacon Grant that we received from Grand Lodge. We gave away 46 bicycles and many bicycle accessories along with a free helmet to each child. We served 140 grilled hotdogs, bags of chips and bottles of water.  Thank you to C21, Nick Cook, Heart Smart, LLC and the Elks members who donated bicycles and Walmart for donating the bicycle accessories.  A special thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the event, especially Roger Kelly who helped me shop and transport all the bicycles.
