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.
“Battle of the Bunnocks” Bunnock Tournament
Our club has recently (summer 2018) taken on a new exciting fundraiser – a bunnock tournament! Our first year hosting this was a RESOUNDING success! We were able to raise just under $5700 that will stay in this community. We are SUPER stoked for the 2nd annual Battle of the Bunnocks on July 20th, 2019. Watch our Facebook Page for up to the minute details!
