Stratford Rotary was proud today to join South End Community Center Bike Rodeo again. Bike safety was priority, and Rotary donated bike helmets and bike locks. Finally every kid was treated to Grilled Hot Dogs, chips and beverage. Service Above Self is our mission. The Police Department was on hand to instruct the youngsters on how to safely ride their bikes. The Fire Truck and the police dog were a big hit. Entertainment was provided by retired police officer Frank Sapione, who dazzled the children with his illusions.
As you can see from the pictures the kids had a great time.  Fran Sinish deserves a big “Thumbs UP” for coordinating event and the delivery of the bike locks and food. Some children that did not receive a bild helmet were given them today. Special thanks to Jack and Phil who worked the grill and to Fran, Jeff, Sheri, Joe Gresko, Lou, Diane Barber and Paul who served the food. Thanks for Sterling House for the loan of their equipment. Stephanie Philips was cheerleader and photographer.
