To the Editor:

On June 16, 30 local children and teens became proud owners of refurbished bicycles, thanks to the combined efforts of many.

Thanks to the New Milford Youth Agency and Social Services staff and volunteers who organized and oversaw the activities, the Rotary Club of Greater New Milford, who bought new helmets for participants, Bike Express of New Milford, who provided fantastic technical assistance, and Friendly's Ice Cream staff, who offered wonderful ice cream treats for all in attendance.

All summer and beyond, these kids will enjoy reliable, healthy transportation. Timeless fun.

We are grateful to everyone who enabled this event to be successful.
