Books For Bikes
Bikes for Books is an initiative that the Saskatoon & District Kinettes created. We partnered with one community school and added a second in 2014, to promote reading, specifically an improvement in reading levels between January and June. The entire school takes part, divided as follows: Grades 1-4 and Grades 5-8. Two winners are then chosen from each group, one boy & one girl. The top winners, along with their parents are taken shopping for a brand new bike, helmet and lock. The runner-ups are given a backpack with books & school supplies.
Our club has a long-standing partnership with Elmwood Lodge (Kin Manor). On the third Thursday of each month, our service directors plan a craft for our club to do with the residents at the lodge.
