Bike and Build in Natchitoches June 12th, 2014

We would like to welcome Bike and Build to the Natchitoches area. Bike and Build is a group who raise money via sponsorships and spend the summer riding across America on bicycles to various locations where they assist with building affordable housing. While in Natchitoches they will be presenting a bike safety program in the parking lot of the First United Methodist Church parking lot Thursday, June 12th at 5:30 PM. The program is designed for kids ages 5 – 14, but all are welcome. Kids should be prepared to get wet. After the program there is a 1/2 mile group ride around the block.

This fantastic opportunity is hosted by by the First United Methodist Church and Trinity Episcopal Church. We’d love to show our support by having a great turnout amongst Bike Natchitoches families!
