Bike helmet donations


May 2, 2018

From right, Doug Robin, Sweet Home Police Department Community Services Officer, Ken Bronson and Donna Short gather around bike helmets donated to SHPD to be given to children during the annual Jim Bean Public Safety Fair. Robin, Bronson and Short represented the Santiam Spokes, which donated 50 extra small helmets, which Riley said ran out last year. The Santiam Spokes are headquartered in Lebanon with 100 members across the Mid-Valley. The group donates helmets to police and fire departments in Albany, Lebanon, Sweet Home and Brownsville as part of its philanthropic efforts with money earned from its annual Strawberry Century Bicycle Ride. It will host the 26th annual ride June 9. For more information, email
