On Thursday, July 2 at the Courthouse in Hartford City, Mayor Dan Eckstein will read a proclamation in honor of the 50th anniversary of deCycles, a group that takes part in long distance bicycle rides to promote physical, mental and spiritual well being. The group formed in Hartford City in 1970 and is currently on a 1500 mile ride of the Great Lakes area. The group will leave Auburn, Indiana earlier that day and hopes to arrive at the Courthouse between 4:00 and 4:30 PM. They would like to invite any former member and those with memories of the group to attend.
