ASHLEY: The fourth annual Bikes for Tykes Christmas party will be held noon to 3 p.m. Dec. 11 at the Ashley Fire Department hall. The party, sponsored by the Wyoming Valley Motorcycle Club (WVMC), was the original idea of Bob Lonsdale, a past president of the club.

Fifty-five new bicycles will be given to area children who have been identified by Catholic Social Services. The party includes Santa Claus, elves and reindeer. Ice cream and beverages will also be available for the children.

Funds for the bicycles came from several sources, including a memorial ride for “Big George Thompson,” a member of WVMC who died of injuries sustained in an accident; WVMC member Jim Gill, who held a dress-down day at Intermetro Industries; WVMC member Carol Gill, who received donations from her employer, Kingston Surgical Center/Eyecare Services; Tommy Boy’s Bar and Grill, Nanticoke; Indian Lake Inn, Bear Creek Township; and Good Fellos Food and Spirits, Pittston. The Ashley Fire Department also donated $100 and the free use of the hall.

In case of inclement weather, the date will be changed to Dec. 18.
