HandleBar_Happy_housHandlebar Happy Hour attracts more than 70 bike donations. The Handlebar Happy Hour event sponsored by BikeWalkKC and the city of Mission at The Bar last week brought in more than 70 bicycle donations. The donated bikes will be given out to families this holiday season as gifts for kids. BikeWalkKC will also hold a “bike shop” after the holidays where families can come and select a bike for their kids on a first come, first served basis.

Johnson County Med-Act hosting Thanksgiving safety tweet-along. Thanksgiving can be a busy time for emergency responders, so as a way to raise awareness about the most common calls they received during the holiday season, Johnson County Med-Act will be hosting a tweet-along tomorrow from Shawnee. Paramedics will be posting video to Facebook and Twitter throughout the day starting at 8 a.m., with information about common Thanksgiving injuries as well as check-ins from ambulances in action. Anyone who has a question for the paramedics can use the hashtag #AskMedAct on Facebook and Twitter.
