Sheriff’s bicycle collection this Friday 

To the Editor:

This Friday the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office and The Villages bicycle clubs will be accepting “gently used” bicycle donations at the Lake Miona Recreation Center from 8 a.m. until noon. You can drop off your bike at the north end of the parking lot where local cyclists will remove them from your car. If you cannot transport your donation, pickups can be arranged by calling (only on the day of the collection) (352) 259-2611. Every effort will be made to pick up your donation. 

The bikes will be unloaded, washed, tires inflated, test ridden, minor repairs made then loaded onto trailers to be distributed in time for Christmas.

If you have questions, please email Dave Lawrence at

Make a Child’s Christmas by making a donation.
