Chapter H & The Freak Show

Chapter H & The Freak Show

 

Chapter H was approached by a member about helping out with a Haunted House. They needed help in the parking lot with all the traffic in and out and parking cars.

This opportunity turned into a great partnership!

Not only did Chapter H help park cars, we brought so many helping hands to the events that we actually helped in the haunted house. We had so much fun scaring people, it was constant laughs.

The haunted house is located in Saboogla bottom in Calhoun Co in North Mississippi and is put on by a group called “The Freak Show”.  They started this haunted house as a fund raiser to help a family in need. This concept goes hand in hand with what we as Dream Riders do. Dream Riders helps with sick children from ages 0-18 and The Freak Show will help families that have needs outside the realm of sick kids.

We have formed a partnership with this group of awesome people and will continue from here on out in the month of October every Friday night to be there to help with parking, help with scaring, help with what ever they need us to do.

If you see our flyers out in October 2017, come out and see what it is all about. And if there is ever a need that we can pass on to The Freak Show, we will be glad to lend a helping hand in that department also!

Thank you for all you do!

Trike-A-Thon St. Jude Fundraiser

First Baptist Fund Raiser

Dream Riders Chapter H, had the pleasure once again to help with the fundraiser for Trike-A-Thon for St. Jude, and helped supervise all the fun.

The kids were having a blast riding circles around us adults, many of them pretending to be on motorcycles.

After the Trike-A-Thon the kids had a field day trip to the local pumpkin patch,  we escorted their bus and hung around and played games with them.

It’s always an amazing day to be a DREAM RIDER!!!

Special Needs Day, Houston Agri Center, Ch. H

Dream Riders was once again invited to help and participate in the 2016 Special Needs Day.

October 21st was the Fall Fun Day for the Special Needs Children of Chickasaw Co. For years now Mrs. Jo Cross has headed this event up to provide a fun atmosphere for those that are limited in what and how they do. It has been an honor to assist in the event, it doesn’t take long for these children to steal your heart.  Some remember us from year to year and some are just so excited to be there and play games and win prizes that is all they can think of.

To all those that have allowed us to get to know your children – we Thank You.

And to those that put on these events that we get the privilege to participate in – we Thank You

And to those Children that steal our hearts – we Thank You!

Kids Day in Okolona MS

Kids Day in Okolona MS was a great success!

Dream Riders Chapter H was ask to attend a Kids Day in Okolona MS, and show encouragement to the kids that attended.

It was the first event of this kind in Okolona and was a great success.

Many kids showed up, we had a lot of laughs with the kids and lots of fun letting them sit on our bikes and talking to us.

It is always great to see the sparkle in children’s eye when you show them you care and genuinely concerned for their well being.

CRUZIN’ HOUSTON & MOTORCYCLE SHOW

Cruzin’ Houston

Was a success!!!

We had numerous bikes show up for the bike show.. Our contestants were excited about the trophies we had to give out..

The highlight of the event was that we had partnered with the local pre-kindergardeners and they colored paper plates that were tied with string, and the children that came to the show got to pick a plate to hang on the mirror of the bike of their choice. The winners were able to carry the plates with them also as a souvenir.

 

We also had our drawing to give away  a YETI cooler. We gave away 2 family passes to the Buffalo Park and Zoo in Tupelo MS. We had a  lot of happy people by the end of the show!

What makes our events even more special is, we have children show up that want to help us out, they want to help give away goodies, balloons, and just hang out with us because we never make them feel like they are in the way, we treat them like they are part of us!

It is always an amazing day to be a DREAM RIDER!!!!!

Another successful fundraiser

Chapter H with some of the Sundancer kids

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.

Motorcycles and Solar Cars

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.

Everyone admired the car.

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.

We all stayed busy.

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.

We even provided drive through service.
