Bike show to benefit dyslexia center

NEW CASTLE — Motorcycles will be on display tomorrow to help children with dyslexia.

The David J. Smith Memorial Bike Show starts at 6 p.m. outside the Scottish Rite Cathedral, 110 E. Lincoln Ave. Admission is free.

There will be awards given for the best custom bike, rat bike, oldest bike, slow race and loudest bike. Bikers pay $5 per competition.

There also will be a barbecue, a 50/50 drawing, a Chinese auction and a D.J.

The show, sponsored by the Hiram Scottish Riders motorcycle club, pays tribute to the memory of David J. Smith. Smith was a member of New Castle Lodge 642 and former chairman of the Western PA Masonic Learning Center Board. He  died in March at age 77. He was a general contractor and residential builder who owned and operated David J. Smith & Sons Construction Co.

The Children’s Dyslexia Center of Western PA is a nonprofit organization that provides, free of charge, multisensory reading and written language tutorial services for children with dyslexia.

For over two decades, the Scottish Rite Masons, Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, have been national leaders in the effort to help children and their families overcome the painful obstacles of dyslexia. There are more than 50 active Dyslexia Centers in 13 states.

Do you talk to yourself when you're alone?

Yes, but I’m basically just thinking out loud.
No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
