Reed Point sisters Brooklyn and Bristol Ketola.

Bikes for Books, Kindles for Kids now county-wide

One of the joyous opportunities of spring is the final assemblies and awards programs at the Stillwater County schools.
An important part of these ceremonies are the presentation of reading awards. The Stillwater Masonic Lodge supports the reading programs by donating bicycles for the “Bikes for Books” and Kindles for the “Kindles for Kids” programs to the schools.
The bike awards in Reed Point were particularly heartwarming. Fifth grader Bristol Ketola committed to the reading program and reading enough to win a bike. She succeeded as one of the top readers and won a bike, not for herself, but for her sister, pre-kindergarten student Brooklyn Ketola.
