Businesses recognized for their contribution to Optimist Bike Rodeo

The Optimist Club of Lewiston - Auburn, Maine is the latest club to get in on the bike safety game.  With a donation from Oxford Networks, they were able to give away three new bikes at the Bike Safety Rodeo.  Rainbow Bikes made safety inspections and adjustments for every bicycle at the event and the Police Department gave safety tips.  Another well organized community effort for the kids.

Normally I would wonder where is the picture of the children enjoying the day, but I thought it might be nice to point out that this club chose to recognize the adults for their participation. Not as cute a picture, sorry folks, but every bit as important.  It shows that the club is grateful for the donation, it gives a little advertising for the event, and it allows the community to know that Oxford Networks and Rainbow Bikes are involved with the children of the community and with the Optimist Club.  Good job all around.

Shown in the picture are AnnMarie Payne, Rene Braun, Lauren Eastman, employees of Oxford Networks; John Grenier, owner of Rainbow Bikes; and Shane Wright, president of the Optimist Club. Photo courtesy of the Lewiston-Auburn Optimist Club.
