Bicycle safety event held in Owensville

The village of Owensville held a children’s bicycle safety event in Gauche Park May 10.

Sponsored by the village council park committee, the purpose of the bicycle event was to teach the children who live in the village all about the do’s and dont’s of bicycle riding as well as a chance to utilize the park facilities, said council member Kimberly Beuke.

“We are doing this for the community,” Beuke said. “We need to bring people together in Owensville in a positive way. The recreation committee is trying to plan many activities in order to accomplish that and to take advantage of this beautiful park.”

Owensville police officer Dwight “Ike” Day and Owensville Safety Bike Officer Justin Moore spent three hours teaching the more than 20 children about bicycle safety through entertaining activities and games.
