5 years ago Monument lodge approached two area schools and presented them some information on a program that encouraged reading with a chance to win a bicycle & helmet.
The results were spectacular as the reading picked up substantially in the grade that participated.
Since the program began 5 years ago when we gave away 6 bikes to kids in one grade at 2 schools
we have expanded to almost 30 bikes at 3 schools.

We really believe our kids are the future and think anything that will encourage a child to do any extra reading is a great thing.
We encourage the parents to attend the awards assembly in the spring to watch the expressions on the kids faces as the names are being drawn and that will give you the answers as to why we do it.

If anyone has questions regarding the program please contact us at
