SPONSOR'S NEEDED FOR MURRAY ROTARY CLUB'S BIKE RACE



The Murray Rotary Club and Bikes for Kids are excited once again to present the Salt Lake Valley B4K Stage Race, scheduled to be held on May 30th and May 31st.  The bike race has become a popular event, and this stage race has become the premier multi stage race in the Intermountain region.


Proceeds from the Murray Rotary Criterium help support Bikes for Kids Utah, a nonprofit organization that provides under privileged children with free bicycles.  Bikes for Kids has delivered 1,000 new bikes every year to children in the state since it was first established in 2006.

A successful criterium is dependent on the generous donations given by sponsors of the event.  Sponsors can provide in-kind donations or cash, and several sponsor levels are available.  For more information on becoming a sponsor, contact Elliott Smith at 801-573-0444, Glen Perry at 801-230-3619 or John Karen at 801-505-8481

MURRAY ROTARY: CANDIDATE FOR MURRAY CITY MAYOR ANNOUNCEMENT

Murray Rotary was honored to have long time Murray resident Ted Eyre formally announce his candidacy for Murray City Mayor on Monday, March 18th.  Ted felt Murray Rotary was the perfect place to announce his candidacy since he has many friends in Murray Rotary and because he was involved in the founding and running of the Murray Greenhouse that has been one of Murray Rotary’s ongoing projects.

Ted had been approach almost 12 years ago by former Mayor Lynn Pett to run for Mayor.  The timing was not quite right, as Ted work for Delta Airlines, flying international routes and was only home a few days a month.  Now Ted is retired from Delta Airlines.  The subject was approached again a few years ago.  The timing is perfect right now and Ted wants to devote his time and effort to serving the citizens of Murray.

Ted Eyre’s campaign slogan is “Build on the Past and Focus on the Future.”  He lists four very important qualifications as (1) integrity, (2) dedication, (3) service, and (4) leadership.  He feels Murray’s greatest assets are its informed and involved citizens.
