Kennewick Masonic Lodge
#153, in cooperation with the Kennewick School District, is coordinating a “BIKES FOR BOOKS” program. The
objective of the program is to provide an incentive for elementary school kids
to read. The guidelines for the
Kennewick School District selects the school(s) where the program will be
implemented (the number of schools selected will be based on the number of
bicycles available). Each
selected school will be given two bicycles (one boys and one girls).
selected school(s) will administer the program.
As each student completes a reading assignment, they get to put their
name into a drawing for the bicycle. The
more books they read, the greater their chances to win.
a predetermined time period, a drawing will be held at the school and the
bicycles awarded to the winners.
Masonic Lodge #153 will coordinate with the local community to obtain
sponsorship for the program. All
donations collected will be directly applied to the program.
Our objective is to provide bicycles to the Kennewick School District
twice each year (September – December & January – April).
Masonic Fraternity sees the education of our children as a worthwhile endeavor
and strongly supports any program that will increase their chances to succeed in
life. The ability to read is one of the fundamentals in obtaining
that goal. It is our hope that you
will join us by providing sponsorship for the Bikes for Books program.
