The students of Lafayette School were invited to participate in the Maine Dept. of Education's summer reading program "Read to Ride". If students were the winning boy or girl in their school with the MOST minutes read their name went to the State Dept. for a chance to win a bicycle.
Ben Hartford was the boy winner for Lafayette school and as you can see he was also the LUCKY winner of the boys' bicycle from the State. Ben, his mother, and sister went with Mrs. Remick to Wal-Mart where Ben got to select the bike and helmet he would like to have. He chose a "spiffy" red and black bike and helmet!! Congratulations to Ben and all of the children who may have participated in this event!
