The holidays are coming up but there are still plenty of exciting events going on at the Newark Bike Project. Ready, set, go!
Volunteer Orientation & Community Meeting
Wednesday, November 28th, 7 & 8pm
- At 7 pm, we will organize an orientation for everyone who wants to volunteer with NBP. During this one-hour orientation, we’ll talk about NBP’s mission, how to run the open shop meetings and lots more.
- At 8 pm, we’ll have a community meeting to discuss NBP’s upcoming projects. The meeting will be short (30-45 minutes) so please be on time!
We’ll be donating about a dozen bikes to Tick Tock Early Learning Center in Avondale, PA this holiday season and need bikes fixed up! Come join us, there are also lots of stuff to do around the shop. We have about 10 bicycles that need to be stripped down and scrapped. Stripping down bikes is a great way to learn about bikes if you’re not a skilled mechanic, so be sure to come around.
The Singing Santa Bike Ride
Saturday, December 8th, Meet at NBP 3pm, Carol at 3:45pm
The Singing Santa Ride is hosting a benefit for the Newark Bike Project on December 8th, 2012! Families and friends should all come out to enjoy an afternoon of riding and caroling down Main Street in Newark. It will be a loop up to Main Street where we’ll stop at two or three locations to raise our voices (and money) for NBP!
The songs to be sung are Silent Night, Jingle Bells, and Angels We Have Heard on High. Besides the carolers, we’ll need folks who can hold up a sign or two for NBP, collect contributions and explain what NBP is all about to interested passers-by. Everyone will have time to stop and get a hot drink or cupcake from Main Street before we ride back to NBP. And as always, we can always use more folks to join us for our “bike parade”, even if they don’t stay for the singing. Please dress up! You can wear a Santa suit, dress like a reindeer or elf, wear garland or wrap yourself like a present!
Just in case… the rain / snow / it’s-just-too-darn-cold date is one week later, December 15th
