Summer is winding down and it seems like the months have flown by. Classes have started for many public schools and the nights are getting cooler. Here’s a look back at an event that kicked off the summer…

Gilead Christian School held their Trike-A-Thon event over the Memorial Day weekend in late May. Parents and friends gathered to cheer on their favorite ‘racers’ as the students raised funds for the pre-school program. The race has become a favorite annual event.

Here are some photos that will put a smile on your face!
