On Dec. 6, 12 honor students from Lind-Ritzville High School and 16 from Lind-Ritzville Middle School boarded a bus to Kennewick to make Christmas a little brighter for area communities, including Lind and Ritzville.

Students took part in the 10th Annual 598 Bikes for Tikes, organized by the Tri-Cities' Local Union 598, a union of plumbers and steamfitters.

The local students helped with build day, a day where hundreds of volunteers--mostly from the Tri-Cities area--meet at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick to assemble bikes. This year, more than 2,000 bikes were built.
