The March 3rd meeting came to order at 7:06. Pledge of Allegiance said and prayer by Santa.
We had 23 total in attendance. 1 new member: Terry Morris, and 1 guest: Herb Rials (Region 13)

Jeremy read Treasures report: MRF was paid.

Kritter read Awareness report: 38 students for the month 51 total ytd. Awareness party is April 12th, 7pm at the Bancroft Hall, $10 admission and bring a plate to pass. This helps to raise money for our billboard. Please come, bring a few guests and lots of $5 and $1 bills for the water balloon toss (it’s always fun to throw water balloons at Kritter). Sloppy Joes, Veggie pizza, water and pop are provided, BYOB.

Marte’s LO report: Please keep calling your reps on all of the issues ABATE supports. Marte wanted us to be aware of HB-4643 a bill that will fine picketers $1000 each. This is a violation of our First Amendment rights and the right to assemble. It could also prohibit our yearly Freedom Rally at the capitol, our Awareness Rides and it could also prevent us from picketing businesses that discriminate against bikers. So please read up on this and make those calls.
Thank you to Herb Rials for guest speaking at our meeting and filling us in on all that is going on at the Capitol and with the Board of Directors.

Big B read Cares and Concerns: March Birthdays; 5th “Frog” Miller, 7th “Honey Bear” Johnson, 19th “Jo Mama” Bruce, 28th Rich Turchi, 29th Lynn Turchi, and Larry Scotts Birthday would have been on the 8th. Please keep Deb’s brother in-law in your prayers.
