Letter to the editor: Bike Parade organizer thanks community for a great event

letter_maybeTo the Editor:

The Boca Grande Community Center had its 30th Annual Bike Path Parade last Saturday, which turned out to be a great event for island residents and visitors.

Even though there were only 17 entries in the event, the participants and spectators had a lot of fun.

This event would not be possible without the support of the GICIA, The Boca Grande Woman’s Club, Friends of the Boca Grande Community Center and Lee County Parks & Recreation.

We also want to thank the Boca Grande Fire Department, Lee County EMS, Lee County Sheriff’s Office and all of the wonderful volunteers who made this event safe and enjoyable for the community.

A special thank you to Lo Lo Weir, Larry Warner, Misty Nichols, John Mendez and Bill Winterer for doing a fabulous job judging the event.

Joe Wier,

Supervisor for Lee County Parks & Recreation

and organizer of the Bike Path Parade
