The Barberton Community Foundation will be celebrating its 20th anniversary of building a better Barberton this year.
We have partnered with community organizations throughout Barberton to celebrate this milestone. Each month will have a contest associated with the theme and provide information about the Barberton Community Foundation as well as our community partner. Each contest will be posted to our Facebook page with details. To participate, stop into the Foundation or visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/barbertoncommunityfoundation.

Bike 2 Barberton Day will take place on Saturday, July 29, 2017. The day combines two bike friendly events, the Bike Rodeo and the Larry Bidlingmyer Bike Ride, into one family-friendly free event.
The Barberton Police Department hosts the bike rodeo for children grades K- 5th. Where they learn about bicycle safety, go through a bike obstacle course and have bike inspections from RD Bike Shop. Immediately following the Bike Rodeo, the Larry Bidlingmyer Bike Ride will take place. There are two routes including a 1-mile kid’s ride around Lake Anna and a 10.5-mile ride on the Magic Mile and Towpath.
After the completion of both events, there will be drawings for free bikes and bike accessories. Participants will be encouraged to stay and enjoy Barberton Better Block on 2nd Street in Downtown Barberton. Helping to further the perception of Barberton as a bike friendly community.
