post to have people like

roll please: The LO Report: ABATE
has come a long way as a grass
roots organization and voice at the capitol. This year will be no
different, we need our members to step up and be active. Our freedom is not
free and only we can make
us or break us. Put Legislative Days and Pizza and Pop Day on your calendars.
We need to introduce ourselves again and make them aware that we are not going
away just because the Helmet Law passed in our favor, our work is not done. The
next three are days we try to meet with the House Reps and Senators: Wed
March 16th; Wed April 13th; Wed May 18th. Wed June 8th is the Freedom Rally
on the capitol steps at Noon. The latest statistics
on motorcycle crashes show proof that Education and Awareness, not Helmets,
make the difference. There are two new House members in Lansing. Remember to
write, email, snail mail, Facebook or
see the Reps. in house.
for Awareness by Kritter, 84 students so far in 2016. Mike is super busy and
needs instructors! Please help if you can!
Don’t forget we have the Awareness Party on April
9, 2016 and the Awareness Ride on April 30, 2016. Get ‘em here, get your
yard signs for just $10
each. Put ‘em all over your yard; that
will make them aware!
Discussion: By laws will be updated and
put on ABATE of MI website after changes from seminar. Hot Rod-Awareness Director
of Mi talked about
not worrying about region borders when teaching awareness. Save a Life is what
matters! Now isn’t that was ABATE has been saying all
along??? Hmm, am I wrong? Thanks
