Opening a new school bus shelter

Bus

Cosumnes River Elementary School's take on "International Walk to School Day" was "Walk to the Bus Stop," and it happened early Wednesday morning. The event included the grand opening of a new bus shelter at Riverview Park in Murieta South. Although there were no speeches or fanfare, Kiwanis officials who attended had the opportunity to see the result of the club's effort to add bus shelters to the community as dozens of children gathered at the bus stop. The Kiwanis Club solicited $44,000 from South developer Reynen & Bardis and contributed $4,000 to construct two shelters, the first of which opened on Murieta South Parkway in 2007. The shelters were completed with the help of the Rancho Murieta Association. Read more » about Opening a new school bus shelter
