August 13th, it all happened .. we had the best time. It was hot, it was rainy, we were busy, it was hectic, but it was all worth it.
Once we got set up, the Sundancer’s started showing up. They were all extremely knowledgeable about everything that had to do with their solar car. They could tell you how much the car weighed, how far it would travel depending on the speed it was traveling at, and everything in between. Their teacher also came to support them. We found out from the teacher that this is a student driven program, meaning when they go to compete in a competition they can have no contact with their teacher or they get disqualified. Those kids have to know that car inside and out from top to bottom.
The kids were very well mannered,kind and respectful. It was such an honor to be able to do something to help them continue on with their goals for their future and the continual future of the Sundancer Solar Car teams.
It’s always such an honor doing an event in the community. Getting out an talking to people and telling them what we do And being able to show them how much we love what we do is such an awesome feeling. Being blessed with such a very supportive community makes it all the more better.
And at the end of the day it was all worth it, not only did we what we could to help the Sundancer Team , got our Dream Rider bumper sticker on the car with the possibility to travel all over the world!
Houston Solar Car Race Team Fundraiser
Houston, Ms is so proud to be home of the Solar Car Team of Houston High School. They have been part of many competitions (Solar Car Challenge) and won many awards all over the world. The longest distance traveled was the Australia.
Dream Riders Chapter H will be hosting a fundraiser for this great group of kids on August 13th, 2016. We will be set up at our local Walmart in Houston, MS 660 E Madison St (Hwy 8 East). Plans are to have the Solar Car there with us along with some of the kids..
We hope everyone can come out and join us for a grilled hamburger,
and take the time to meet some of these SUPER STARS from Houston Solar Race Team.
The Day @ The Lake was a Blast
July 23, 2016, was a WET day! If the rain didn’t get you then someone with a water gun did,lol.
I’m not sure if anyone got an actual head count on the kids, but I would venture to say at least 60 or more. Boys and girls were there from all over the state.
We would like to thank everyone that made this day possible. Family Bounce, Sardis Lake Fire Dept., Hardee’s , Pope Country Cafe, Mississippi Fish and Wild Life, Air Evac, Batesville Police Dept Dare officers, Panola County Sheriff Dept Dare officers, BSA Troop 478, and CMA.
Every Chapter was represented, and pitched in to help provide a hot meal for everyone. Afterwards we enjoyed some watermelon and deserts.
So many individuals pulled together to make this year another success for the record books. So many times we are all pulled in our separate ways, but this one day it is the biggest family reunion imaginable.
Day @ the Lake
July 23rd, Dream Riders will be celebrating another year of fellowship and fun @ Sardis Lake. There will be fire trucks spaying the kids “and adults” with water. Water Guns will be also be available along with watermelon, food and bouncy slides.
Open to friends and family of Dream Riders that we have helped in the past and to those that want to be part of the Dream Rider family.
Enjoy our pics from last year cause we look forward to posting lots of new pics from this year…,
Thanks for reading
James Arthur Holland aka “Crash”
Dream Riders lost a beloved Brother James Arthur Holland “Crash” to cancer June 28th 2016.
Crash was Vice-President of Chapter E out of Melbourne, Ar.
He will be greatly missed by friends, family and all of his Dream Riders family.
Hardy, AR, Griffin Park was the pace to be. Chapter H from Houston, MS met up with Chapter I, from Flippin, AR and E, from Melbourne, AR, we all met up and worked together to do the best we could at cooking those “mud-bugs”. They turned out great!..
It was a lot of fun getting to fellowship with friends that live so far away. It is also an awesome feeling knowing there are so many of us that pull together as 1 big family. The support from the community was just amazing. Most of the visitors where out-of-towner’s also but when word got around that “Dream Riders” where there, well the support was amazing…
Thank you my Arkansas friends for letting us be a part of and awesome day

Some times it’s tough being a Dream Rider. This week we had the honor of standing guard as family left the Funeral Home heading to the Cemetery. Lil Oliver never saw the light of day, his mother was only 8 months pregnant when she began hurting and knew something was wrong. When she got to the hospital it was to late. The doctors had to deliver the bad news that her precious angel was no longer living.
After hours of agonizing labor, the terrified mother delivered a beautiful 4 lb baby boy. On the outside he was tiny but perfect. There will be many sleepless nights for this mother wondering “why”. But all of God’s glory and time he will have answers for her that no one but her can understand.
The very next day we were asked to escort the funeral procession of a 9 year old angel from the church where they had her farewell goodbys, to the cemetery where her lil body was laid to rest.
9 year old Anna Carol had a surgery that took a good bit of intestine and bowel. Scar tissue had wrapped severely around her intestine. the doctors had to leave her intestine out of her body to heal. Her liver and kidneys were in the process of shutting down it was so severe. Only a few hours after the surgery she passed away. Her family, friends, class mates, cheer leader squad mates, teachers, preachers, and Dream Riders all shed tears of sorrow for the family’s loss.
But you can bet it was a true honor and privilege to stand with these families and comfort them in the best way we know how and that’s through love , support, and kindness. We, Dream Riders wouldn’t want that any other way.
Sometimes it may be tough being a Dream Rider, but it sure is rewarding to the heart and soul.
