Vintage Open House Party to take place on February 20th
We’re looking forward to our upcoming vintage themed Open House party on Thursday, February 20th from 6-9pm.
The Bicycle Co-op has a lot to celebrate! We’ve come a long way since we first started operating out of a small residential garage. Since moving into the United Way building in 2011, we’ve acquired many tools, bikes and parts, attracted many dedicated volunteers, served countless patrons and even hired two part-time staff members.
In order to thank the many people who help keep the Bike Co-op running, as well as attract new patrons and volunteers and spread the word about our programs and services, we will be holding an Open House Party on Thursday, February 20th from 6-9pm at the Bike Co-op, located in the United Way building at 1531 13th Street in Columbus.
Party guests may dress up in clothes from their favorite vintage era, or simply enjoy the photo booth with vintage props. Expect food, music and a cash bar at this fun event. Visitors can also enjoy tours of the Bike Co-op, a display of vintage bicycles, crafts made from repurposed bike parts, and a silent auction including a front loader workman trike and items from both local bike shops, The Bicycle Station and Columbus Cycling and Fitness.
Craft Creation Day – Jan 26th
Join us this Sunday, January 26th from 12-4pm to make crafts out of repurposed bike parts. We will be making crafts to sell in the silent auction at our Open House on February 20th. Bring your ideas and whatever you feel is a crafting essential. We will have a bunch of ideas and supplies available as well if you just want to come help!
Come relax and craft away for a good cause!
