Bikes for Books
Through Rising Sun’s Bikes for Books Program, about 1800 students from area elementary schools take part in reading books, and have the chance to receive one of 36 new bicycles, locks, and helmets which are awarded. Contact us for information on how you can help.
Brothers Treff Sage, John Woodrow, and Al Sewell have been making calls to our Special Ladies and Shut-ins to see if they need our assistance. If you know of someone who needs some help, contact one of them, or your officers, especially Bob Porter, Steve Bahsler, or Guy Martineau.
Child Identification Program
According to the most recent, comprehensive national study by the U.S. Department of Justice, in one year approximately 800,000 children younger than 18 were reported missing. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children reports that the first three hours are the most critical when trying to locate a missing child.
The Child Identification Program gives parents, at no charge, a CD with photos and video of their child, and a digital record of their finger prints, as well as a cheek swab, to give to police in the event their child is missing.
Nashua Fairy Tale Festival
Part of Nashua’s Summer Fun calendar, the objective of the Fairy Tale Festival is to promote literacy for children, and encourage learning through entertainment. Rising Sun members volunteer each year in a number of capacities, from emceeing the event, to being children’s story book characters, to crowd control.
