A big thank you to all of you for your help in the 2021 Community Bike Ride! We had a fun and safe day. Thank you for your positive thoughts if you could not be with us that day.
Thank you to the volunteers who make the ride what it is. And, a big thank you to Anderson Rentals, The Merc, and Sunflower Outdoor & Bike for making sure everyone had what they needed!
For the first time in our ten years of bike rides – we welcomed donations for a local organization – FLAT (Friends of Lawrence Area Trails). They are on a mission to help Lawrence complete the bike loop. Thank you to those who donated – they reported to us that they collected $1,229 in donations at the event.
Please enjoy a quick look at a few pictures from the day. We look forward to the ride in 2022.
Lawrence Central continues our annual fundraiser for the work we do every year. As in year’s past, we will be selling wreaths and other holiday decorations from Lynch Creek Farms and in Lawrence Central’s partnership with them, we receive money back from every sale to help fund the service projects we do. Some examples of our service activities include:
We want to continue to do this work and more with help from you and all you need to do is simply purchase holiday decorations. You can do this by talking to any of our members or there’s an even easier way – visit our Lynch Creek fundraising website, peruse what they have, and order yourself! We’ve even set up an easy link:
If you’re not comfortable with ordering online we totally understand – you can also call Lynch Creek direct toll-free at 1-888-426-0781 and please Lawrence Central Rotary Fundraiser #246673.
Lynch Creek is a family business that started in 1980, now transformed from selling a few flowers and vegetables at the local farmers’ market on the weekends, to a full-blown year-round business that ships throughout the United States.
We could go on about how great these wreaths are, but when we were at the Lawrence Rotary Club recently, Jennifer Berquist stopped us and told us this,
“I purchased several Lynch Creek items as holiday gifts. Those who received the evergreen gifts were so pleased and impressed with the quality. It is a huge seller for me that the Lawrence Central Rotary Club receives part of the profits. I will definitely place another order this year!” – Jennifer Berquist – Lawrence, KS
Lynch Creek Farms have been amazing to work with and they care about the groups that sell their wreaths and decorations. Here’s a video about the business.
