Bahia Vista Students Receive Bikes



The Safe Routes team delivered bikes and helmets to 26 students and some of their parents and siblings on May 15th at Bahia Vista Elementary School. This was possible due to the generosity of a six-student community service committee from Hall Middle School, who hosted the bike donation drive.
