BIKE MONTH! Support needed for Bike to School Day on WED.


Bike to school day is WEDNESDAY! Volunteer some of your time to support biking!


"Dear Bicycle Community -


We need help with National Bike to School Day, on Wednesday, May 6th, especially at Grant Street Elementary School. They are looking for crossing guards to assist students on foot and bicycle across as many as 6 street crossings near the school. We need folks' help morning and afternoon, as school opens and during school release as students migrate home. This event was very popular at the school last year, and hundreds of kids participated!!


YOU can help at either (or both):

Morning Shift: 7:15 am - 8:00 am

Afternoon Shift: 2:30 - 3:15 pm

We will furnish safety vests for crossing guards courtesy of WSU Extension and provide home-made mini muffins, coffee and juice in the morning for volunteers and cookies! in the afternoon. We will also be handing out prizes to student who participate in the morning: stickers, spoke lights and a few bicycle bells. (Bused students may participate by walking around the school yard.)

Please let me know if you can help make this a very special day in promoting active living (biking and walking to school) by email  WPburden (at) aol.com or giving me a call at 301-0982. Make sure to let me know at which shift you would like to help.

Many thanks!!!
