On October 27 the Everett Police Department (EPD) and the Everett Kiwanis Club hosted their annual bicycle safety program at the Sammy Gentile Recreation Center. Children not only received free bicycle helmets, but four lucky raffle winners took home one of four new bicycles. Families were also treated to candy and treats to celebrate Halloween; some children dressed in costumes.
Ready to roll on the raffle prizes were Kiwanians Bob Marra, Stephanie Martins and Stephen Rocco.
