Volunteers needed for Bicycle Rodeo!

FBO will present a Bicycle Rodeo to the third and fourth grade of Kinsey Elementary on Wednesday, September 24th.  We are looking for volunteers from 9:30am-2pm.  This is a great opportunity to teach children the rules of the road and to educate them about the importance of wearing a helmet.  They leave with new knowledge (and go home and tell their parents!) and you leave knowing you made a difference!
