Village Bicycle Cooperative shines for the holidays
On Sunday, Dec. 6, Village Bicycle Cooperative participated in the Cahoon Christmas program. Adults and children were able to make a free up-cycled sun catcher with paint, beads and various sized used bike sprockets. The creativity and fun was obvious as the participants showed off their unique designs of the sun catchers. Ann Riley, parent of Doug and Ella, commented, ”It was the best project. Something I will keep and use.” The community was able to also tour the co-op and purchase bikes or shirts from VBC.
The first up-cycling workshop was held on Nov. 21 when 20 Cub Scouts from Pack 729 were able to make a sun catcher and also recycled two bikes. They were also treated to a tour of the facility where they learned about how bikes are refurbished and finished the day with donuts and cider.
Village Bicycle Cooperative continues to provide sustainability projects for our community either through recycling bikes and parts or learning ways to recycle bike parts. VBC appreciates and thanks all who continue to support us in various ways and wishes you a wonderful holiday.
