Pedal Power Project

We’ll be raffling off 3 ‘almost new’ bicycles at the market, on Saturday, August 10.  These bikes are really beautiful.  Tickets will cost $5 each.  When we have sold 100 tickets we’ll close the raffle.

All the money will go to buy bicycle parts like tubes, tires, brakes, etc. for the Pedal Power Project – a very worthwhile project which rehabs used bikes which are given to refugee families.
