Bikes loans available for Workers on Wheels

Summertime means seasonal workers, many of them international students without a way to get around town.

 

First Congregational United Church of Christ in Grand Marais loans used bicycles for a $40 refundable deposit through our Workers On Wheels (WOW) Bike Program. Last year we loaned out over 60 bikes!

 

We’re grateful to the support of Moving Matters and individual donors who have contributed money for bike and helmet purchases, and to our crew of volunteers who maintain and check out bikes. (You are welcome to make a tax-deductible donation at any time! Make checks payable to “First Congregational UCC” and write “WOW” in the memo line).

 

Please make note of WOW hours and dates, and inform your summer workers of the WOW Bike Program. If you would like to schedule a group pick-up, please contact the church office.

 

Workers may check out bikes, get help with minor repairs, or just come for coffee and conversation:

June 1 – October 1

Sundays          11:30am – 1pm

Tuesdays        9am – 11am

Thursdays      2pm – 4pm

 

First Congregational UCC

300 West 2nd Street, Grand Marais

(218) 387-2113

Workers can get news about WOW and sign up to be paired with local hosts to go hiking, canoeing, or take shopping trips to Duluth on the International Workers Facebook page: www.facebook.com/homeontheshore

 

Blessings,

Rev. Beth Benson

Attention Readers and Parents

Attention Readers and Parents

School may be out but that's all the more reason to check out the Little Free Library on 103 3rd AV. West.  There are some additions to the TEEN space.  And, by the way, if you are out walking in the dark but want to see inside the top box, look inside and feel for  the switch to turn on the solar powered light.  Then you can browse and read.  There is a new addition to the bottom box.  Behind the board books are 3 new books marked "5th - 7th grades.  These are new books that you may not have seen in the public library.  And it will be a spot where the tweens can find some good reads.

Thanks so much for all the donations the Box received last week.  Very much appreciated!!
