Kids on Wheels off to a fun & safe start

Altrusa's 1st Annual Kids on Wheels event started off with a bike safety rodeo, licensing of bicycles, bike tune-ups, and free goodies for all the kids who attended.

Altrusa of Montrose is thankful for all the support for this event that came from our community!  Jeans Westerner sponsored this event by letting us hold it on their property, and donating to our give away bags. We had bike maintenance technicians from Sports Authority and Jeans Westerner (Edward Barnett and Shane Singer).  Officers from the Montrose Police Department (Chris Hoeh and Giovanni Mendoza) volunteered to conduct the bike safety rodeo, and sent one of their office personal (Jolene Blowers) to license the bikes.  We had volunteers from Altrusa and Kiwanis to help set up and run the program.  Donations for the giveaway bags came from Jeans Westerner, Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage, McDonalds, and Kiwanis.  Our flyers and labels were designed and printed by Altrusa members Anita Johansen and Christy Biella, and other Altrusans helped out during the event, including Janis Marcha, Cindy Donohue, Susan Bony, Marge Keehfus, Cheryl Gibson, Diane Winger, and Kylee Smith.

During the next several weeks, students at Columbine and Centennial Middle Schools will be able to participate in a Ride-a-Bike-to-School Challenge sponsored by Altrusa.
