Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

Thank you to the Tisbury police department and officer in the school, Scott Ogden, for an amazing Bike Rodeo at the Tisbury School on Saturday, June 15. Dozens of students came with their families and passed the safety course. Many received new helmets donated by the police department along with free backpacks, hotdogs and hamburgers cooked by their principal John Custer. Students from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade participated in this celebration of safe biking on the Vineyard. Three lucky students won new bicycles also donated by the police. Many thanks to the PTO for their assistance in passing out Safe Routes to Schools mementos and other gifts. It was a wonderful event.
