Watch & Learn About The Little Lights Of The Night

Posted on August 13th, 2017 by Lara

Explore the fascinating world of brilliant bugs during our firefly watch. We’ll begin the evening shedding a little light on the secret life of fireflies, while making firefly containers to catch and hold some of these fascinating bugs, then begin our quest at dusk and watch the night time magic begin as thousands of fireflies rise from the park. All ages are welcome. Flashlights recommended.

Held at Raccoon Valley Park, meet by the bike path bridge
No registration required

SpokesKIDS Jr. Bike Ride  | #420570
Grades: PreK – 3
Date: July 29, 2017, 10:00 am

The idea behind the SpokesKIDS Jr. bike ride is to give elementary-school-age children the chance to have as much fun as possible while riding their bikes to raise money for Pelotonia. The ride is for children in grades Pre-K through 3 and will be a part of a larger community celebration supporting Pelotonia. It will begin at Wildwood Park, travel along the bike path and end at the Granville Inn with a celebration for the riders. The route options include a choice between a 3-mile route and a 1-mile route for riders who may find the 3-mile route to be too long. Each will include a Pelotonia-style rest stop with water, sports drinks, and fruit available.

There is a $20 registration fee, which includes a T-shirt that riders will wear on the day of the ride*. All net proceeds will be donated to Pelotonia through Team Granville Spokesmen. Upon registering for the ride, you will receive an email from Jeremy Hopping with information about where to send the registration fee. Riders can also raise funds above and beyond the registration fee if they would like to. Information about that optional philanthropic component of the ride will be included in your registration email.

For safety purposes, all participants must wear a bicycle helmet, and volunteers will monitor riders at all times. Bicycles will be provided for any child who does not have a bicycle of their own.

*NOTE: Registration ends July 27th. T-shirts guaranteed if registered prior to July 15th.

Register on the GRD web-site. Upon registering for the ride, you will receive an email from Jeremy Hopping with information about where to send the registration fee.
