Turner, Oregon Police Department Bicycle and Skateboard Rodeo
Below is something I just received regarding an event in Turner, Oregon thrown by the Police Department. Spread the word, sounds like a good cause.The date of this event is on Saturday, May 21st from 9AM until Noon. Pass this around if you know anyone that might be interested in helping.
Here is a letter for Sergeant Don Taylor:
To Whom It May Concern,
Every year, we at the Turner Police Department take the opportunity to put on our annual Bicycle and Skateboard Rodeo. During this time, we have the opportunity to positively interact with the local children in our city. We teach them all the various safety tips for riding, conduct safety inspections on their equipment, teach them the rules of the road they need to follow, engrave their equipment with a parents drivers license number in the event of a theft and run the kids through a safety course.
During this time, we also give out helmets to those kids who need them, free of charge. We also offer both snacks and refreshments to the kids, again free of charge of course. One of the most enjoyable times for the kids we have found is when we pass out prizes. However, due to our current budget we are not able to purchase prizes to be handed out.
I have decided to contact you with hopes that you would be willing to donate a prize or prizes that we may be able to give to the kids. The date of this event is on Saturday, May 21st from 9AM until Noon. If you were able to help us out with any donation(s) whatsoever, it would be greatly appreciated not only by the Turner Police Department but also by the child who wins it.
Thank you very much for your time as I know you are very busy and probably get countless requests. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
