Bikes for Books Winners
The Otterville School encourages their grade school students to read more books by participating in the “Bikes For Books” program offered by the Wallace Masonic Lodge #456-Bunceton Mo. The winners were selected by a drawing held May 16, 2018. The students get one chance to win for every book they read. The bikes were sponsored by the Bank of Otterville, and the AG COOP of Otterville. Students are very excited about the program and want to read more. Pictured are the winners, as well as Bobbi Jo Schoen representing the AG COOP and Steven Nesler representing the Otterville Bank. We give a BIG THANK YOU to the sponsors for providing the bikes. As of today they have given 24 bikes to the students. Good job students and keep reading!
There is a free lunch program this summer at the Otterville First Baptist Church. More information can be found by clicking HERE
