Subject: Harrisonburg Bike to Work Day


Dear Islamic Center of the Shenandoah Valley,


I am helping to organize the second annual Bike to Work Day in Harrisonburg, a day to celebrate the benefits of bicycle commuting and help people give it a try. This year, Bike to Work Day will be held on Friday, May 20. We will be provide breakfast for participants on the lawn of Court Square that morning, as well as a commuting workshop leading up to the event and individual assistance available for first-time bike commuters. For more information on the day, visit our website:


I am contacting you to see if you would be willing to publicize this event among your members in some way. Below you will find a brief sample text for a bulletin/e-mail announcement. I have also attached a 1-page flier which you are welcome to print out and post. 


I hope that you will participate with us in making this a successful day to promote individual and community health. Please feel free to contact me either at this e-mail address, or by phone at 908-8194, if you have any questions. I'd also appreciate hearing if you do choose to publicize this event.
