Waterford giving away 40 bike helmets at Helmet Rodeo Saturday

Waterford — The Recreation and Parks Commission will give away 40 new bike helmets on Saturday as part of its Helmet Rodeo.

Helmets will be distributed at no cost to Waterford children in grades K-5, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Community Center on Rope Ferry Road.

Members of the town’s police department also will be at the event helping children find the perfect fit for their new helmets.

The helmets were purchased at the Niantic Bay Bike Shop and donated anonymously to the town in the spirit of safety, Recreation and Parks Program Coordinator Kerry Sullivan said on Tuesday.

Helmets will be distributed at a first-come first-served basis.
