Williams Elementary Students Receive New Bicycles

[slideshow_deploy id=’58289′]

On Tuesday, May 20, 2014 the Williams Police Department hosted its annual Bicycle Rodeo at Williams Elementary School where twenty five, second and third grade students were the lucky recipients of new bicycles.

The two-day event is part of a cooperative bicycle safety education program between the Williams Police Department and Williams Elementary School.

The bicycle rodeo was developed to give the police department an opportunity to educate the students in bicycle safety, and the rules of the road. Emphasis was given on the importance of wearing a bicycle helmet

Students participated in the rodeo with instruction from the Williams Police Department School Resource Officer, Ivan Maldonado.

During the rodeo, students were judged in the following areas: a circle ride and straightest ride (control), cone weave and slowest ride (balance), and maneuvering in an intersection (signaling, stopping and looking both directions).

The students were scored, and one boy, and one girl from each grade receiving the highest points were to receive a new bicycle.

The 2014 Williams Bicycle Rodeo second grade winners are: Nathan Kaba and Lexy Rodriguez; the third grade winners are: Nolan Fitzsimmons and Julythza Rodriguez.

Additionally, 21 students from the second and third grades received bicycles as part of a randomized drawing. Those winners were: Stephen Baker, Javier Gonzalez, Leslie Hernandez, Audrey Aragon, Jose Martinez Florez,

Yahir Gomez, Diego Torres, Estefany Garcia, Emaliegh Rodriguez, and Mariana Rivera, Diego Mogollon, Esmeralda Velazquez, Jayden Peterson, Francisco Saabedra, Abril Loza, Natalie Jauregui, Ricardo Rodriguez, Sofia Bautista, Manuel Vazquez, Ameer Garwan, and Kimberly Guevara.

The Williams Police Department also distributed 230 new bicycle helmets, and bicycle safety handouts to all of the second and third grade students.

The Williams Police Department 2013 Bicycle Rodeo was made possible by the cooperative efforts of its Police Officers, Elementary School Staff and local businesses who’ve donated to this year’s bicycle rodeo.

The Williams Police Department would like to thank the following companies for their support: Colusa Casino Resort, Recology Butte Colusa Counties, American Commodity Company, Colusa County Farm Supply, Williams

Liquor and Food, Fouch & Son Pharmacy, Roy’s Supermarket, El Toro Loco, La Fortuna Bakery, Ramada, Mid Valley Distributing, Louis Cairo’s Inc., De Pue Warehouse Co., Bar Ale, Williams Ace Hardware, and Sanders’ Heavy Towing.■
