Turning Wheels for Kids a Sucess

The 26-member Team ACTC joined with nearly 600 other volunteers for the assembly of 2200 new bicycles on Saturday 12/13 in the South Hall of the San Jose Convention Center.  It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun.  Due to the limited amount of floor space we were allocated, as coordinator of the team, I had to limit the number of helpers.  I will try to get us more area next year.

A total of 34 checks for $2240 were received by Karl Laucher from club members.  With the club donation of $3000, our $5240 was the largest of any team and we became the first recipient of a rather large traveling trophy which I have and will bring to a club meeting.  We have to return it next December.

This has been a great program and kudos go to the club members who have donated their time, talents and treasures to help 2200 children enjoy new bicycles at Christmas.  Maybe one of them will be another Lance Armstrong.
