Millet offering positive tickets, bike rodeo

Positive youth set to benefit, bike safety the focus on May 30

The Town of Millet community peace officer has two great programs coming up soon for local youth.

CPO Chanse Trenholm stated Apr. 12 he has organized, with the help of many great local sponsors, a positive ticketing program and a bike rally.

Positive ticketing

This type of program has become common and involves nominators who notice local youth doing something productive, friendly, law-abiding or helpful within the bounds of the Town of Millet.

CPO Trenholm will contact the family and provide the youth with a prize or gift, plus he noted the parents are in-line to get a gift too.

He noted great kids have some great parents as role models, so everyone will get a boost from this program. “When a youth is doing something positive, that usually means the parents are setting a good example,” said Trenholm at The Pipestone Flyer.

CPO Trenholm noted that he’s gathered a great list of sponsors to help with the positive ticketing program, including Wetaskiwin Cinemas, Edmonton International Raceway, Manluk Centre, Burger Barn, Fas Gas, Sweetie Pies Bakery and possibly more.

Bike rodeo

Trenholm said the Town of Millet will host a bike rodeo skills and safety event Wednesday, May 30 at the Agriplex. Trenholm said this will be a great opportunity for youth to learn some spring and summer safe riding skills.

Youth of all ages are invited, but should bring the bike they normally ride and safety equipment like a helmet.

Circuit Cycle of Millet will be on-hand to provide free bike inspections and will likely have a few of their bikes there too.

CPO Trenholm said he’s arranged for Italian shaved ice to be available with prizes or gifts for all participants. Each participant will also get an official Town of Millet certificate for completing the course.

The bike rodeo will be inside the Agriplex, so it doesn’t matter what the weather does. Trenholm said the event will be a lot of fun and will increase safety skills for local kids.

Trenholm said pre-registration would help him determine how many participants will take the course. Email him at with the number of participants, names and ages.

He said more information will be available soon.
