BIKE RODEO!

The SU Cycling Club, together with Shippensburg Cub Scout Pack 251 and Shippensburg Community Parks & Rec, is hosting a… KIDS’ BIKE RODEO Friday, April 21 (TODAY!), 6:00 – 8:00 pm, Memorial Park, Shippensburg. All grade school-aged kids and families are invited. Bring your bikes and helmets. We’ll do some safety checks and have a super cool bike course laid out on pavement and grass. We can adjust helmets, fix bikes, lube chains, maybe help your kid learn to ride a bike, teach some things about bike safety, and just have fun. (Serious about the fix-your-bike thing. We can fix most things, as long as we have the parts. Or at least we can tell you what needs to be done to get it fixed. So, you know, free help…) Find us in the big parking lot beside the stadium. Please pass along to anyone who may be interested

Summer Playground Scholarships!

Scholarships for summer camps and pool memberships are available through the Shippensburg Community Resource Coalition!!

Through the Partnership for Better Health, the Shippensburg Community Resource Coalition is able to offer camp scholarships to Shippensburg youth ages 6 to 17.

"We believe that all children should have the opportunity to attend summer camps and programs and financial stress should not be a barrier."

Children who are part of Shippensburg Area School District or Big Spring School District and qualify for financial assistance are eligible for the scholarships.

Here is the application.

To apply for a scholarship for pool membership, just write in which pool (Shippensburg Memorial Park Pool) the membership is for instead of the camp name.

Any questions about the scholarships should be directed to the Shippensburg Community Resource Coalition.       Website:   shipresources.org  Email: swk-scrc@ship.edu
