At this year's District 5710 banquet Lawrence Central Rotary was awarded the Significant Achievement Award for our community service project: Ride Lawrence.
Ride Lawrence's intention is to be a clearinghouse for bicycling information in the City of Lawrence and the Douglas County Kansas area.
On July 16th we are also sponsoring a Community Bike Ride that will offer activities for every age and skill level, including a Training Wheels Take-off area for kids wanting to learn how to ride without training wheels.
The event will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 16, at the Lawrence Rotary Arboretum. Several bicycling organizations have already volunteered to help with the event. Contact me if you would like to help or need more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
