At the start of May, two familiar faces cycled through our community.
Pembina Trails Superintendent, Ted Fransen, and Chair of the Board, Jaime Glenat aimed to pedal their way to each of our 35 schools. Due to rain and strong winds, the two leaders made visits to 23 schools and have promised to complete the ride on May 20, 2020. The first part of the journey was filled with plenty of waves and short social distancing visits.
“Our goal was to show gratitude towards school staff who are supporting learning at home during COVID-19. We are inspired by the dedication we have all witnessed over the past five weeks. We hope that, by taking the time to stop at each building, it sends a strong message of appreciation,” shared Jaime Glenat.
This ride was even more symbolic, as the duo took their bikes down a similar path in 2017, to mark the 150th anniversary of Canada.
