The Elks will also hold its first Youth Bike Fest from 3 to 5 p.m.

The Elks created this event for underprivileged youth of the Lakes Region to provide them with a bicycle. The Elks worked with the Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region and local papers to get the information out to the families. Each child that has met the financial guidelines will be provided with a bicycle. There will also be a bike safety course for all to teach youngsters the rules of the road.
