EDWARDSBURG – St. Peters Masonic Lodge, in partnership with Edwardsburg Eagle Lake School and the Circle Credit Union, is once again hosting a Books for Bikes program for third-grade students.

Eight bicycles will be awarded to third-grade members who read teacher-approved books and Circle Federal Credit Union will contribute bicycle helmets for the winners. In addition, Vincent Pisani from KP Electric donated a bicycle for the competition.

Every time a student reads and earns five points from Reading Renaissance, he or she can submit an entry into the contest. The draw for the winners is scheduled for May 24, 2024.

The Masonic Lodge has served the Edwardsburg community for more than 150 years. The Books for Bikes program was started more than a decade ago in memory of Marcia Barrs-Parrish, mother of former master Robert Parrish. Robert Parrish said her efforts have instilled a love of reading that the program hopes to pass on.
