Thank you for your sacrifices
Well the turkey feast is over till Christmas… and it is a great time to take stock of all the things we have to be thankful for everyday, not just while sitting around that pretty turkey in the middle of your table.
Let’s take the time to share our “Good fortune” with the less fortunate. Any act of kindness makes a big impact on another persons life. Take part in a toy run or drive to ensure smiles under the Christmas tree; donate to a food bank to fill the bellies of those who often go to bed hungry; help a friend or neighbour with a chore that they are struggling with…take the time to donate your time.
This year took it’s toll once again with inattentive drivers injuring riders on our roadways. Bikers Down is a non-profit organization to help these innocent riders and their families when tragedy strikes.
The annual Bikers Down Auction will take place this year on Sunday, November 22nd at Freeman’s Little New York, 552 Sackville Drive, Lr. Sackville, NS.
The fun begins at 1pm and is only $5/a paddle to bid on items up for auction. If you can attend, your support really counts; and donations for the auction are always appreciated. This is a fun day, with music provided by Krazee Kraig.
We all need assistance at some time in our lifetime and tragedies strike without warning. This not-for-profit organization was formed to provide assistance to motorcycle enthusiasts in need – regardless of age, make of bike or riding club – JUST LIKE YOU!
Let’s spread some good karma – got something to donate? Contact the folks at Bikers Down. http://bikersdown.com/contact-us/
It is such an uplifting feeling when someone visits your home province, and then takes the time to write to you, expressing their sheer joy at the wonderful experiences and friendly people they encountered.
For the past few years we have been honoured to present a Grand Prize Expense Paid Trip in Nova Scotia; at the world’s largest touring rally, the Americade in Lake George, New York.
This trip is made possible by the hard work of many people. Thank you to the staff at DEANS (Destination Eastern and Northumberland Shores); and the motorcycle friendly resorts, hotels, motels, bed & breakfasts, restaurants, cafes, lobster suppers, museums, attractions and the NovaStar cruises who all have generously donated their services as part of the prize package.
This year’s trip covered 11 Days & 10 Nights in Nova Scotia and the winner Cheryl Vagell of New Jersey wrote this 4-page letter:
Here is a photo of Cheryl as she and her motorcycle are blessed during the smudging ceremony at the Cape Breton Bike Rally in Sydney, NS.
