The Greater Pittsfield Area Kiwanis Club will hold its Annual Bike Rodeo on Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Somerset Plaza Parking Lot by the Bangor Savings Bank. This event will be held in conjunction with the Pittsfield Recycling Committee’s Bike Swap / Drop Off and Bud’s Shop ‘N Save Customer Appreciation Day.

Enjoy this fun packed day with lots of free activities. The Key Club will guide children through a bike rodeo course designed to teach bike safety skills. The Kiwanis Club will provide for free checkups for children’s bicycles; free bike helmet and bike safety materials while supplies last; free raffle for 2 new bikes available to any child completing the course; and bikes available for use if a child does not have one. The Recycling Committee will have a Recycling Corner for a Bike Swap for interested citizens who have bikes and want to swap with other bike owners. In addition, people can drop off bikes in the Recycling Corner that they no longer need and want to donate to others. The Town will take the donated bikes to the Trash to Treasure Recycling Center for adults and children to use who need them. There is no rain date for the Bike Rodeo and Swap so it will be held unless it is pouring.

These fun items will be held in conjunction with Bud’s Shop ‘N Save Customer Appreciation Day at the Plaza. Bud’s will have FREE Carnations for the first 150 lady customers; a cooking demonstration by HealthySV; Free balloons for the children; a free raffle for a door prize; free food samplings; and people can win prizes when buying lottery tickets. The Community Pharmacy will present its new Free Vitamin Club for Kids Program and a BBQ will be held to raise money for Relay for Life.

Other sales will be taking place at the Plaza. There will be something of interest for everyone. Please make sure to come to the Somerset Plaza with your family on Saturday, May 11th to participate in this fun-packed day!

The Kiwanis Club’s mission is to make the world a better place for children. The purpose of the Recycling Committee is to promote recycling, re-use and reduction to conserve the earth’s natural resources. Bud’s Shop ‘N Save in Pittsfield is a true community partner dedicated to not only serving and helping the citizens and businesses of Pittsfield, but also the entire Sebasticook Valley.
