Six David Barton students who participated in the school reading program were awarded a new bike and helmet Dec. 13. The bikes and helmets were bought by local sponsors and distributed through the Bikes 4 Books program operated by Cooper Lodge # 36, the Masons. Each semester 36 bikes and helmets are distributed to six area schools. The Bikes 4 Books program is an incentive to encourage primary and elementary students to discover books and reading. Students pictured from left to right: Khale Bohlker, Kheera King, Nathaniel Halford, Brooklyn Frankin, Jordan Potter and Audri Simms. Sponsors for the Bikes and Helmets are W K Ford, Alliant Bank, Snapp’s Hardware, Quinlan Agency and The Cove.
