Village leaders encouraged parents in the community to bring their children to the annual Tupper Lake Police Department's “Bike Rodeo.”
The event, under the chairmanship again of Officer Mike Vaillancourt with help this year again from Officer Heather Kennedy, will again be staged at the Paul A. Maroun Emergency Service Building on Saturday, June 8 from 10a.m. to 2p.m.. Before the station was built four years ago the event was staged for years at the lower parking lot of L.P. Quinn Elementary School.
Thousands of dollars in prizes, helmets and great food go to the young riders and their families each year.
“It's always a great event for kids, their parents and families,” asserted Mayor Paul Maroun. “It was a big success last year and I expect it to be a greater success this year!”
A full story on all the event will be carried in next week's issue.
The mayor also took the opportunity that evening to plug the upcoming J.D. Golf Tournament on Saturday, June 1 at the Tupper Lake golf course which benefits the hometown department's K-9 unit, directed by Sgt. Jordan Nason.
“We have law enforcement officers coming from all over the county and from sections of Troop B state police and it should be a great event.”
