Lewis County ABATE
April came in like a lion and didn't let up but for a couple nice days. Roads remained wet and slick for the majority of the month. For those of you that were able to get out and ride on those days, KUDOS! I am looking forward to some nice warm weather.
We have a lot going on this summer. We just finished a successful luncheon at Low and Shelli's Antique sale making nearly $800.00 that goes to our Down Riders fund. Well done and a big thank you to all those that assisted and attended. We have our Charter Party coming up on May 13-14 along with the ride to Mt St Helens the morning of the 15th. Stay tuned!
We are also hosting the benefit drive for Low and Shelli Ackerman on June 4th. If you can, we are asking for your support in providing gift baskets that can be auctioned off. Additionally, we will be providing a potluck dinner and live music. Further details will be provided in an upcoming Facebook post and a flyer that will be distributed.
We will start handing out $500 scholarships this month. High Schools usually have their Scholarship Awards the last week in May or first week in June. We pick students that have a GPA of 3.2 or lower and plan to attend a community college or trade school. Our goal is to reward the student that gets overlooked most often when it comes to scholarships. We hand out scholarships to eight of the High Schools in Lewis County. Elk Country Chapter takes care of the three east end schools.
Look forward to seeing you all on the road! Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, and always enjoy the wind therapy when you can!!
Thank you all very much!!
