Continuing  a tradition of recent years, the Sitka Mount Verstovia Masonic Lodge gave bicycles to five Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary School students during the 2012-13 school year. The lodge has donated one bicycle to a student in each third grade class in the school. Yellow Jersey Cycle Shop owner Bill Hughes presented a helmet and lock donated by his shop as part of the prize. Winning students usually are chosen for their citizenship, classwork and attendance.
