Trips for Kids Bike Safety Clinic

Biking and cycling are very popular in the Charlotte area, and it’s no different here in Davidson! We live in a very bike and pedestrian friendly town with access to the greenway, Fisher Farms Park trails, and trails surrounding Davidson College. To promote bicycle safety, Trips for Kids Charlotte teamed up with local officials, bike path designers and volunteers to put on the Davidson Bike Safety Clinic at the Ada Jenkins Center. We’d like to thank all who came out to volunteer their time to put this on. Special thanks to John Finney of Spirited Cyclist who fixed and adjusted bikes and even donated one for a giveaway! This was a hugely successful event and we hope to host another clinic in the future.

Thank You Janet!

Janet McFadden was many things to many people, but mostly she was loved. For us at Ada Jenkins, she took care of many of our pets, but she also gave back to our community through Ada. In recent years for Christmas in Davidson, she sponsored our Christmas tree. She had even reached out a couple of weeks ago about this year. She was already planning. Now her children are bringing things to the Center. I think it is a way that they are honoring her.
We miss you Janet, personally and professionally. Thank you for all that you’ve done for so many of us.
