DENVILLE, NJ-- The Denville Kiwanis Club celebrated the Kiwanis International's 100 birthday by doing just what Kiwanis is all about- giving back.

The Bike Rodeo was hosted at Town Hall from 9:00 to noon and provided kids with a chance to get bikes inspected, ride around obstacle courses, and help celebrate the Kiwanis Club's 100 birthday. The kids spent most of the morning riding around the parking lot of Town Hall. 

Denville Kiwanis Club member Lance Incitti helped to check the families in as they arrived. Although the weather played a factor with the amount that turned out, Incitti was happy to know that he could help save one childs life at the event.

"Even if we help save just one child, than the Kiwanis Club has done it's job," Incitti said. 

Also at the event were the Denville Police Department and Cycle Craft. Cycle Craft donated the prizes, including a kids bike. The kids that attened the event were also taught about bike safety from the Police Department in the form of a coloring book that was given to each child. The event ended with a special bike ride with a police escort through Denville.

The next upcoming event for the Denville Kiwanis Club is the Father's Day Annual Pancake Breakfast. The breakfast will take place at Gardner Field under the pavillion on June 21 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Happy 100 birthday Kiwanis International.
