Press release

To extend "I love to Read Month," the Masons have a "Bikes for Books" program. Sam Clawson and Kurt Iverson represented the Masons and presented  two bikes in an assembly Thursday at Box Elder Schools

A third bike and helmet was purchased with donations from the Box Elder teachers and staff. 

The students put in tickets for books they had read for April and May. The ticket pulled for the grades K-1 was kindergartener Xavier Spotted Bird for reading "On the Farm."

The second ticket pulled was second-grader Katelynn Big Bow, and the third ticket pulled was fourth-grader Tien Ochoa,who read "Marley: a Dog Like No Other"- and asked if he could ride his bike home after school.

Xavier and Katelynn received a certificate from the Masons with a limit of $100 to purchase a bike and helmet from Walmart. The rule is that it's safety first - they have to buy a helmet with the bike or the certificate is no good.
