2016 Annual Bike Rodeo

New bikes await new owners 

The Maine Potato Blossom Festival is over but memories abound, especially for the club's annual Bike Rodeo participants. During the rodeo youngsters ages 2 through 12 are given bike safety instruction by Officer Jim Cerrato, ride the riding skills course, receive a free new helmet, are eligible to win a free new bike, get to ride with police escort down Main Street, and receive a free hotdog/French fries/soda lunch. This year’s bike winners were Trey Zetterman (ages 2-5), Jack Helstrom (ages 6-8),
and Aydin St. Pierre (ages 9-12).

Special thanks to the Fort Fairfield Police and Fire Departments, Crown Ambulance Service, and Knights of Columbus for their support.
