WILLMAR -- A dozen bicycles ready to be given to needy children were removed this week from the warming shed in Lincoln Park.

The bikes belonged to the Wheels4Kids program affiliated with the Willmar Child Guide Program and Willmar Community Education and Recreation.

With financial support from Willmar Kiwanis, the program accepts donated bikes, and volunteer Jim Bode repairs them to give away.
