BELLEVUE BIKES FOR BOOKS WINNERS

Masonic Lodge No. 51 AF/AM of Bellevue once again this year sponsored the Bikes for Books program at Bellevue Elementary.  Being proponents for public education, the Masons sponsored a contest where students in grades 3 - 5 who read eight books over a six month period (including summer) could enter a drawing to win a new bicycle. Winners of $225 gift certificates to the Backwater Bicycle shop were (standing in front)  Jackson Van Gorp, Avi Herrig, Brayson Sieverding, Addyson Blitgen, Veda Sieverding, and Leonard Weis. The winning students also received a $20 gift certificate to the BookWorm book store in Bellevue to encourage even more reading.
