For three years now, in November, we have hosted a stew cooking fundraiser. Houston Fire Department is very gracious in letting us use their facility, being right off the square in Houston makes it very convenient.
It takes a lot of time making about 30 gallons of stew, but it is well worth the time to raise money to help kids that may not have a Christmas this year.
Since our first year of hosting the stew cooking, we decided to set this money aside to help with Christmas for local families in need. We all know that whether you get a Christmas gift or not is not a necessity, but the community we serve is so loyal in coming together to help us put smiles on those kids faces, simply because we love the kids of our community.
We had friends come from out of town just to get a bowl of stew and also other Dream Rider members took the ride down to spend the day with us.
Our new Sister “Sunshine” Katlyn Grace also showed up to lend a helping hand. She always brings such joy to all of us. She has overcome some huge obstacles in her short little life but wants to come help us anytime she can.
Every year the first weekend in November there is a festival held in Vardaman Ms, it is usually a very big deal, celebrating the harvest of Mississippi Sweet Potatoes.
Dream Riders Chapter H was privileged enough to be able to go and set up to get our mission out to the people of Calhoun County. We have made so many friends and have new family members there as well, we have been very blessed.
Katlyn Grace has become one of our biggest fans and the best little sister we could have. If you remember we had a benefit for her several months back. She has come a long way and has an awesome story to tell.
Another highlight of the day was meeting Mrs. Mississippi United States 2017, Marisa Lepard Farr, she was excited about learning about Dream Riders and all we do.
It was defiantly a great day giving out lil goodies to the kids and informing new friends of what all we do.
Chickasaw Co Development office ask Chapter H again to assist and help Houston PD with traffic and crowd controll for the anual Halloween Boo Bash held on the town square Oct 31, 2017. It is such a full filled time to get to see all the kids dressed up and having a great time.
It is also a privaledge to get to assist the Houston Police Department. The men and wonen in the department have showed support to us on many occasions.
