Chapter H Bike Showand Cruz’in Antique Car Show

We were invited once again to host a bike show along side the Cruz’in Car Show.  For the second year it has been held at the court square in our quaint little town . We have a beautiful court house and enjoy having events there.

There is just something about being from a small town and knowing so many friendly folks. The Car show was started by a friend of ours Allen Moore a pharmacist from the area. His idea was to host the car show with a free registration, grill hotdogs give them out for free, what ever was done he wanted it to be a free event to the public so friends and family could have something to be proud of attending.

Dream Riders Chapter H was invited to participate with a Bike Show, and it has proven to be a success every year.  We try to get really cool trophies, something a biker would be proud to show off. There is a best in show and a kids choice. We try to make it interactive for the kids, so for a child to vote they have to actually hang a smiley face tag on the bike mirror.

FUNDRAISER DONE FOR CHAPTER H

1 GUY FUNDRAISER

Dream Riders Biking For Children was honored when a friend of ours decided he wanted to do a fundraiser for us. Normally it is Chapter H doing all the work, but not this time.

Robbie Pipkin and Rooster Gann Chap. H President

Robbie Pipkin is his name. He came to us and presented this event to us that he had done this as a fundraiser in the past and wanted to do it for Chapter H this time. His idea was simple, or so it seemed,  see Robbie is in a wheel chair, and he wanted to ride the Tangle Foot Trail from Houston Ms to New Albany MS and back – a total of 88 miles. Robbie was shot by a stranger when he was in his early 20’s, he has not let that slow him down or restrict him from accomplishing any goal he has.

The Tangle Foot Trail is an old rail-road bed that has been converted to a walking track. There were an obstacle or 2 to get passed before this event could be completed. Robbie’s plan was to do consecutive 88 miles but The Tangle Foot Trail has a curfew and no one can be on it after dark.  So he had to make different arrangements for the ride.

So, what he decided to do was, he was driven to New Albany about 3 am, then he hit the trail, so he could arrive back in Houston about 4pm.  And then do the same thing again the next day, completing the full 88 miles.

It was not all smooth sailing for Robbie, on one pit stop he meet a man an woman on bicycles, the lady had a seizure, and fell off her bike, Robbie tried helping get her bike out of the ditch and hurt his hand really bad. As you can imagine the 2nd day of ride was not easy.  Robbie never complained about his hand and did not tell anyone about it (he didn’t want anyone feeling bad for him).  He went on to complete the full 88 miles in record time.

This just goes to show you that all it takes is determination to accomplish anything. No matter what adversities you face!

Community Service

Chapter H and Pre-School K-4

Dream Riders Biking For Children, Chap. H was invited to speak about community service. Vardaman, MS K-4 class have been learning about how important  community workers are to the public.

ch h vardaman 2017 4
K-4 class @ Vardaman Elementary School

We were able to share with the class that not every community  server is paid to do the things they do. We are all volunteers and the only compensation we ever consider accepting is all the smiles on the kids faces when we are out and about or at an event.

There is no doubt  about it, Children are our future.. So much potential and so much talent is sitting right here in our local schools, attending our local churches and other events. Never turn down an opportunity to simply ask a child “WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP”.

Also, a huge shout out to all of the teachers that spend their days with our kids and grand kids. Yes, they get paid to do their job but most go above and beyond what their duties call for.. and we “THANK YOU” for that.

And thank you for all you do… if not for you all this would not be possible.

A HUGE SUCCESS FOR KATELIN GRACE

UPDATE ON THE BENEFIT FOR KATELIN GRACE

 

Ch H Katie Grace 2017 1
Presenting check to family from the benefit.

Our benefit for Katelin Grace was a huge success. It is truly one awesome feeling to know that just a few hours out of your day that is given freely can truly make a life long change in someone else’s life.

Ch H Katie Grace 2017 5Ch H Katie Grace 2017 6

Our day was hectic but all worth it.  We started out serving TACO’S IN A BAG. If you have never had this, you must try it. Take a small bag of Doritoes chips, cut the side of the bag (crush the chips first), add taco meat and cheese insert fork and you are done. Quick – one handed – fast – and GOOD!

Ch H Katie Grace 2017 2

The Church provided popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones and a jumper for the kids to play on.

After lunch several bikes showed up to participate in the ride – the seemed to enjoy the 80 mile ride.. And when they came back they were ready for their plate of spaghetti.  Spaghetti that we patiently stood over and stirred noodles for being careful not to let any scorch.

Ch H Katie Grace 2017 3

After everyone enjoyed all the spaghetti they could handle, we had our auction. It was truly overwhelming at how people give out of the goodness of their hearts to complete strangers.  The biggest blessing was that Katelin Grace stayed through the whole event. She may be just sick kid to some people but to Chapter H, she is one strong, determined, and beautiful young lady!

So, at the end of the day, we are here as the same o’le Dream Rider Chapter H, just a group of friend from all walks of life that just want to lend a helping hand and a hand up.

Thank you for all you do.

3rd Grade GT Class fundraiser for Chapter H

3rd Grade GT Class Fundraiser

Dream Riders Chapter H was contacted by the teacher of the 3rd Grade GT Class and explained that she was wanting her class to do a fundraiser and she wanted it to be for a local organization that had ties to our community.

She wanted to know what was our stipulations, we told her we had none that we were just completely honored that they thought of us and wanted to help raise money for us.

Ch H GT class fundraiser 2

First, we had to go to the school for an interview with the class. They ask some very interesting questions about what we do, how we do it, how is it paid for,  why we do what we do, and many other questions. It was awesome to see their minds working and thinking about the fact that we do for others for no pay.

Ch H GT class fundraiser 4

On the day of the fundraiser the class went to the gym and had tables set up for “The Store” with goodies, toys, pencils, erasers, small toys , just all kinda stuff that only cost a quarter to fifty cents. 

Ch H GT class fundraiser 6

The GT class done a presentation to each class in the school about Dream Riders. They had their cue card wrote out and they would take turns speaking or holding the cue card when a different class came in. After the presentation the class got to go through “The Store” .

Ch H GT class fundraiser 3

The ones in Chapter H that got to attend the day of “The Store” and presentations were very blessed we got to talk to a lot of kids that didn’t know anything about us and teachers that didn’t know about us and tell them what we do and if they know of anyone in need that they can let us know.

Ch H GT class fundraiser

It was such a true heart warming blessing to spend that time with those kids. We plan on having a special day for them this spring before they get out of school, to show them our appreciation for all they did.

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

Thank you for all you do!

Chapter H Stew Cooking Fundraiser

Chapter H Stew Cooking Fundraiser

In November we had our 3rd annual Stew Cooking Fundraiser. We cooked about 18 gallons of stew before hand. From the Sheriff of Chickasaw Co to good folks we didn’t even know, we had a great crowd come out and support us on this day.

Ch H stew cooking 2016 2

We sold out of stew within 2 hours, and still had people in line wanting some.

The support we get from our community is outstanding. It is a true honor knowing that we have people that believe in our mission and they don’t just look at us as just a bunch of bikers.

Ch H stew cooking 2016 4

At the end of the day it all comes full circle. The love of being a Dream Rider, the love of our community, the love of kids, and the love of our friends and family makes every day a great day to be a DREAM RIDER!!!

Thank you for all you do!

Once we finished shopping we carried the supplies straight to the Ronald McDonald house where they would be used and shared among the residents.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mississippi

It was explained to us that each family has 30 days @ the home and once the 30 days are up they have to leave to make room for the next family. They can also be put back on rotation as often as need be.

Lil Max – the cutest Dream Rider Ever

We were able to take a tour of the facilities. Each room was set up like a motel room, there was a community wash room, with detergent and all other needs provided. Also, each family had their on kitchen area with a stove, refrigerator, cabinets and sink. Then their is a community refrigerator that would store goodies from local churches and community groups.

There was also a dinning room and living rooms for the families to use. There are no TV’s in the individual rooms so that the families are encouraged to spend time together.

The Whole Group

It was a true eye opener to think about these families that need this support and how important Ronald McDonald is to families. It hit home thinking about how much we take for granite, when we have healthy kids.

We all look forward to next supply run, knowing we are lending a helping hand to those in need.

Thank you for all you do!
