Mayor encourages businesses to give away bikes

Mayor B.J. Hackler is asking St. Joseph businesses to give away a bicycle in July.
Hackler, who came up with the idea with Trustee Art Rapp, is asking businesses to purchase a bicycle to give away during the ribbon cutting of the Kickapoo Rail Trail which will be held in the village in July.
Hackler said he thinks the idea is a win for the village, the trail and local businesses.
“It will encourage people to visit our local businesses and come to the ribbon cutting,” he said.
Hackler said the village will also be participating in the give away. Hackler said businesses could give away a mens, women or child bike. Anyone who visits a participating business could register for the give away. On the day of the ribbon cutting the drawings would be done near the location of the ribbon cutting.
Numerous St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce businesses have already agreed to participate.
Anyone wanting more information on the event can contact Hackler at village hall at 469-7371 or email the Chamber at

Local individuals were looking for its registration including myself. I have shaken all the forums including Coursework Help forums. Finally, I have found one. I'll be joining it with my wife.

Other motor motors on the road act as if you are intruding their assets even when you are biking on the left stop of the road. If you get at the footpath(which isn’t the proper thing to do), pedestrians may be aggravated. Write my Essay for me cheap UK
