The Auburn Optimist Club’s 18th Bicycle Safety Fair will be held June 7 at the Auburn Eagles parking lot, 702 M Street NE.

The event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will emphasize bicycle safety, proper helmet fitting and bicycle maintenance. Children, 6-14, can have their bikes inspected and then participate by pedaling through a supervised course to develop basic bike safety skills.

The Eagles will serve free hot dogs and pop. Children also will be included in a raffle for free bicycles, helmets and bike accessories.

Auburn firefighters, police and other volunteers will be on hand to assist with free safety inspections and bike registrations.

Other sponsors offering free souvenirs, face-painting and kid’s I.D. programs include Verity Credit Union, State Farm Insurance and Fred Meyer.

For more information, contact Katie Coty at 253-833-2770.
