At venues throughout Delta, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday, May 18, children are invited to come in costume and with or without a decorated bike, joining community leaders as they read "Duck on a Bike" and talk bike safety. Free food will be provided by various organizations, and at the end of the day there will be a kids' parade.
Each child, four years of age, will receive a copy of "Duck on a Bike" donated by One Book 4 Colorado in order to promote early literacy. Other children under the age of 12 will receive an age appropriate book. The books will be limited to one per family. Those wishing to participate should visit their local library for more information.
The event will be held at the following locations: Paonia Elementary School, Crawford K-8 School, Hotchkiss Fire Department, Cedaredge Library and Garnet Mesa Elementary School.
This event is sponsored by the Delta County Libraries District, in conjunction with the Hotchkiss Elks Lodge, Cedaredge Rotary, Delta Kiwanis, Delta Literary Guild, Convergent Communications, local police and fire departments, EMS and dispatch, Garnet Mesa and Paonia Elementary Schools, and Crawford School.blog comments powered by Disqus
