Elks 1248 Bike Rodeo - June 2022

From Kim Adams, PER and Chairman of Bike Rodeo: The 7th annual bicycle rodeo was a huge success! Here is a quick rundown of the event: we had 105 kids register to win a bike and get a free helmet. We gave away 41 bicycles and $400 in bicycle accessories.  Approximately 112 hotdogs, bags of chips and bottles of water were also provided. .13 volunteers put in a total of 66 hours and 55 miles of travel to make this event a success. I personally want to thank Roger Kelly for helping me shop and transport all the bikes and Diane Howard for letting us store them all in her garage. The event was funded with a $4000 Beacon Grant from our Grand Lodge, a $100 donation from Walmart, and donations of bicycles from our members Roger Kelley, Mark Wright and Catherine Marciel, along with Century 21, Horizon Bank and Nick Cook. I’m very thankful to everyone who helped make this event a success. This event was originally started by Tonya Brundige, PER; I know she would be pleased.
