Dear Wonderful volunteers,
Yesterday morning’s Bike to School Day was a huge success. As always, it is my favorite morning of the fall, with people coming together to give kids a chance to start their day with a joyful bike parade down Main st.  We are so lucky to live in a community that supports our kids this way.
On last count, we had 165 bikes arrive at MCS yesterday. Amazing!
Thanks again and hope to see you in the spring!
