To the Editor:

Please help us thank everyone who contributed to the success of this year's Youth Agency Bike Day.

Most importantly, thanks to John Gallagher and John Lynch of New Milford Bike Express who customized 30 donated bikes for children and teens from our community June 18.

Just as important are the brand new helmets, purchased by the New Milford Rotary Club and fitted to each child.

Thank you to the volunteers who helped clean and repair bikes: Linda, David and Ryan Lull, Judy and Al Burroughs (and grandson Ethan), Ashley Figueiredo, Steve Confortini, Ben Nieman, Ben Bayers, Rachel Schaefer, Dylan McIlveen, Stephanie Hardisty, Amar Khandari, Hannah Albright, Ryan Courtney, Steve Doyle, Matt Lalli, Melanie Talmadge, Noah Rossiter, Curtis Speede and Jacob Scott.

Also, thank you to everyone who responded to our request for bikes.

The last-minute outpouring was a big help. We hope everyone has a safe and healthy summer on their bikes.
