In May, Affton Early Childhood and Parents As Teachers hosted a trike-a-thon, sponsored by St. Anthony’s.
PAT families, early childhood families and the community joined together at the St. George School where the kids enjoyed a bike track and other activities:
- St. Anthony’s staff was present to help fit bike helmets
- Stations included a place to “gas up” your bike, a bike wash, driver license, and repair station
- Sno cones and popcorn were on hand to help kids and families refuel
The Affton Fire Department was on site and the kids were able to explore the fire truck, as well as put out “fire” with the help of a fireperson. (This was a house with knock down fires in the windows.) And the St. Louis County Police were also on site handing out badges, making sure kids were staying within the speed limit, and allowing them to explore the police car.
