The Gonzales Fraternal Order of Police provided bicycles Wednesday to three lucky Pecan Grove students. The student’s names were drawn from a jar holding many names.The fourth and fifth grade bike winners were eligible for the drawing based upon students who have not received behavior referrals from the first day of school.

“The second grader’s bike was given based solely on need,” said Meyers. “Richard ‘adopted’ him. He has been mentoring him throughout the year and agreed to help with his Christmas.” There is also another bike that will be given away to one of the school’s needy 4-year-olds.
