As this year draws to a close and we look back on the events we put on, the friends we made, the money we raised to give back to the community, I want to make sure that I thank each and every one of the volunteer members of the Bikers Down Board who give their time freely and work very hard to make each event as accessible and fun to those who are able to join us and are able to support the work that was started in memory of Mike “Toad” Roach by his wife Marlene.
All the hours planning, meeting, buying food, setting up the BBQs, using vacation time, asking for auction items, finding free entertainment for events, coordinating volunteer helpers… that time was given freely and we are always working toward helping out people when they need a hand.
Maybe Santa will remember those things when checking off the naughty/nice list. It’s been a pleasure to work with Jimi, Marlene, Tracy, Lynn & Mel, Marc this year along with Vicky from the Western Region and all the Cape Breton BDS board members who joined us for a mainland event or two this year.
Wishing everyone the best of the Christmas Season and New Year in 2018. We’re only here for the ride for a short while – hope everyone had a chance to get in a few in 2017.
