Unity Masonic Lodge will deliver new boys’ and girls’ bikes to elementary schools in the Valley next week, in the kickoff to the Bikes for Books program.

The bikes are the prizes in promotions that inspire local schoolchildren to read. Each school has its own rules, but in general, the more books that students read, the more chances they have to win a new bike in a prize drawing held annually.  Bikes are purchased with donations from the Lodge members and the general public and all donations are gratefully appreciated.
