Pedals for Progress

Donate your old bike or sewing machine! 

We’re a Pedals for Progress drop-off site on Sunday, April 30 from 1:00-4:00 PM. 

(We are also seeking volunteers to help disassemble bikes (kids 12 and over welcome!) Use the email link above to sign up as a volunteer.

We’re collecting adult and kids bikes to send to Nicaragua, Ghana, Albania, Fiji and Guatemala. Do your part to put unused bikes and sewing machines to good use in the developing world. These donations change the lives of adults and children alike, allowing people the opportunity to get to work or school where it is otherwise inaccessible on foot. So, save those old bikes and donate them to a wonderful cause!

Bikes should be rust free. No children’s trikes, but bikes with flat tires in need of some repair are accepted. Portable sewing machines should be in working condition.

$10 minimum donation with each bike or sewing machine is requested for shipping. All material and monetary donations are tax-deductible and a receipt will be provided on site.

(Summer 2017) July Session – Young Novelists: Grades 3-5

Bring your passion for writing to this camp!

Do you love to write and always seem to need to flex your imagination muscles?
Do you love stories with several characters?
Do you have an imagination full of twists and turns?
Have you ever read a book and thought, “I just want to LIVE in this book”?
Have you ever found yourself thinking, “That would make a great story”?

The Young Novelists Workshop allows writers to leap beyond the usual “kid’s short story”. In this mini-camp, we will build upon your story idea using brainstorming, story mapping, visuals, character arcs, and subplot development.

Each writer will receive a story planner notebook. All story outlining is done in-house, and the option to write at home is always encouraged but never required. At the end of the workshop, each writer will have a first draft/outline of his/her novel.

Every young writer has a big story to tell. Now is the time to make yours real.

Ages 8-11 (entering 3rd – 5th grade)

Taught by Guest Instructor
