The board of the Kiwanis Club of Metropolis has voted to hold its annual Superman Bike Ride on Saturday, July 31.

David Park, president of the club, said the annual bike ride will be part of this year's Superman Celebration, which is scheduled for July 30 through Aug. 1.

Park said Kiwanis also voted to move the event's registration to a new location at Washington Park, across from the Metropolis Public Library. According to Park, Kiwanis plans to assemble all riders at Washington Park, walk them to the Superman statue where Superman Josh Boultinghouse will meet the riders and lead them north on Market Street to begin the race.

In addition, the Kiwanis board voted to hold the annual Academic Awards Ceremony at the Community Center on Thursday, April 22. Discussions are ongoing about limiting attendance for this ceremony due to COVID-19.

Kiwanis will resume in-person meetings at noon on Tuesday, May 4, at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Metropolis. Members are asked to bring a $5 donation and a sack lunch to the meeting. This meeting is to be a planning meeting.
