Books for a Bike

Alyssa Neece, 5, holds a certificate as she stands next to her new bicycle at the Kingman Masonic Lodge #22's annual "Books for Bikes" bicycle giveaway at Kmart Saturday morning in Kingman. Neece was one of about 15 kids who received bikes and helmets. Several schools participated in the program, and kids who read books or wrote book reports received raffle tickets. Winners were then drawn and received free bikes and helmets just in time for the beginning of summer. Kmart provided discounts to the Masonic Lodge on the bicycles and the Mohave Shrine Club provided free helmets. The program seeks to encourage a love of reading.
