The Unionville Community Bike Drive Committee would like to thank everyone who donated bicycles, time and energy to this year's collection and repair efforts.  Through your efforts the drive was able to provide 126 bicycles to those in need.  Special thanks to the Cleaver, Vosburgh, Kramer and Fatzinger families as well as the Two Men and a Truck Company who drove their truck through icy conditions in order to ensure that the kids would not be let down.

Writers Day is a Writing Conference for kids. Students choose which workshop sessions they would like to attend. This year, our keynote speaker is MG/YA author Gary Schmidt (The Wednesday Wars, Okay for Now, Orbiting Jupiter).

We are looking for community members who write within their job requirements or for personal enrichment (and everything in between) to workshop with groups of 20-25 students in the morning.

The students bring a notebook and a pencil to your assigned classroom and learn something about writing--from you! Please forward this sign-up document to family and friends who may be able to help us.

Last year, we had community members lead sessions on food blogging, social media marketing, technical writing, advertising, personal journaling, writing for business, journalism, developing a script, historical research, legal writing, science fiction, and many other interesting topics.

You do not need to consider yourself a professional writer in order to participate.

Follow the link below to sign-up to lead a writing session:
