BUILD-A-BIKE!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18TH, 2008! SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19TH, 2008!

DOWNTOWN NEW LONDON

New Members Welcome!

New London Custom Bike Club hopes you can join us as we give something back to our community.

We will meet at 32 Home Street, New London, Connecticut at 1:00PM both days this weekend.

Bring a bike to build, a bike to donate, parts to restore or repair a kid's bike, or tools, supplies, or monetary donations.

The bikes created from this event will be donated to children in need in New London, with the help of the Freedom Trail Neighborhood Association.

FTNA is a non-profit neighborhood group that is part of the New London Neighborhood Alliance. This is a grassroots organization dedicated to helping

improve the oldest neighborhood in New London. This area includes the Hempstead Houses, the oldest houses in the city.

For over 12 years now, the FTNA has produced positive results in this area bringing together volunteers, city and state support, police, fire, and public agencies to make our city a better place!
