Boys and Girls Club

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Bandera County really enjoy partnering with other organizations for success in our future. This past week, the Boys & Girls Clubs partnered with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service for our second annual Bicycle Rodeo! Through this awesome event, we are able to bring state troopers in from across Texas to have our youth learn how to safely ride their bicycles anywhere they go! Youth first learn through a presentation about the importance of bicycle safety and participate in speaking with a trooper. After they learn all of the bicycle safety rules, they are able to go through a 5-part obstacle course with judges to test their knowledge. Because of volunteers from both the Texas AgriLife Extension Office, Texas State Troopers and the Boys & Girls Clubs, we were able to pull off an amazing event with around 50 youth in attendance. THANK YOU to the Texas AgriLife Extension Office for participating with us to help kids learn the importance of bicycle safety!
