2nd Annual Denny-Lincoln Classic: Fun for Everyone
 The Second Annual Denny-Lincoln Classic took place on Saturday May 31st to culminate “Bike to School Month.” Around 35 students and 15 adults came out to ride the streets of West Seattle and BBQ at Lincoln Park. Theresa and Jason Beaulieu along with Seattle Parks’ Will King organized the event.
Abandoned bikes were procured from Metro to donate to kids. Staff and PTSA members dedicated time after school to repair bikes and make them ready to ride. On that warm day even neighbors came out to fill water bottles and quench the students thirst. The Denny-Lincoln Classic is bound to stay and be a great Denny tradition.
