Reader's Exchange: Single dad seeks tandem bicycle

Charlotte of Largo wrote in this week on behalf of a man she knows from church. Greg is a single dad who has recently joined the church and already is becoming very involved in forming activities for the children there. Charlotte says that Greg should be awarded Father of the Year because of his dedication to his son. Greg doesn't have a car, and he gets to church by bicycle. However, his young son doesn't yet know how to ride a bike. Greg is looking for a tandem bicycle so he and his son can get to church and other places. If you can help Greg, please call Charlotte at (727) 593-5349.
