Offers thanks for Harrybooke 'bike day'

To the Editor:

The Friends of Harrybrooke Park held Bike Safety Day on June 30. Children were invited to attend, with their bicycles, for free bike inspections, safety information and other activities.

We would like to thank the New Milford Police Department, Bike Express of New Milford, Bicycle Center of Brookfield and the New Milford Youth Agency for their support and help.

New Milford police officers Ray Arnold and Robert Krider talked to kids about the importance of bike safety.

The Bicycle Center of Brookfield inspected bicycles, helmets, tires and handlebars, and then children were allowed to participate in five cycling events.

At their completion, riders were given a safety certificate.

The Friends of Harrybrooke Park urge New Milford families to use this beautiful park, and to help us in restoring and maintaining it by becoming a member of our group.
