    It started out as a bit of an impulse buy. Conrad Ellis went to the store to purchase candy for the Old Settlers Parade in Alexander, N.D. and decided it would be fun to also give away a few bicycles and helmets. According to The Roundup, that impulse was infectious.

    A vendor walked into Ellis’ office and saw the bicycles and decided he would like to donate a few as well. Ellis realized others might also be interested and began making calls throughout the week. As the parade drew near, the two bicycles that sat in Ellis’ office had turned into 48 that were later given away to children on Old Settlers Day.
