Lyons Reflects on 2014

Lyons Reflects on 2014

Recently, The Lyons Community Foundation released this blog post about the gifts they received in 2014.  Among the many gifts mentioned, was the $40,000 Cyclists 4 Lyons was able to give to the Lyons community thanks to our sponsors, donors, and volunteers.  An army of people came together on the 1 year anniversary of the floods to give the town of Lyons a rockin’ party and a little hope.  Here is a little piece from their website…

Cyclists 4 Community, a nonprofit formed after the floods, raised over $150,000 benefitting flood-ravaged communities around the region. The local contingent of this group, Cyclists 4 Lyons raised $40,000 during the benefit held on the one-year anniversary of the floods.  Scores of volunteers, cyclists, politicians, residents and visitors came together that weekend to enjoy bike races, silent and live auctions, music, food and craft beer in a festive atmosphere in Bohn Park to commemorate Lyons’ progress made over the year.  While the event held mixed emotions for many residents, particularly those not yet home, it was a great success in focusing on accomplishments, emphasizing hope, and raising money for rebuilding moving forward.
