Abate Region 20 March Newsletter
Well, we have all been fortunate
to have such a mild winter. There are motorcycles out right now, so good
thing the Awareness Events aren’t too far away.
There weren’t any guests
or new members this month.
Secretary and Treasurer Reports
were read and accepted.
State of Mi Abate is talking
about a membership drive. This is all in the works and current sign up prices
will remain the same. Our Region has a referral program for a Visa Gift Card.
2016 LO Report: The capitol is busy right now with the Flint Water
Crisis. Pizza & Pop day was a success! Thanks to the member that was there even with treacherous roads.
This should piss you off enough
to act and voice your rights! The Governor’s Safety Transportation Meetings are profiling bikers as reported before. If you wear a back patch that is reason enough to pull you over. This is in the Senate Transportation Committee now. Contact your reps and tell them NO. This is profiling and harassment and should be illegal.
The state is staying with
their “Ride Safe so you can Ride Again” campaign.
Bill 4853 increasing the cost
of Motorcycle safety classes from $25 to $50 passed the house.
Kudos to Harley Davidson for sponsoring free
riding courses to all current and former US military and first responders until Dec 2016 (h-d.com).

by Kritter: 125 students
at the end of Feb. Thanks for giving a shit to Carrie Flood and Audrey Coon for
coming out to the evening classes. Mike still needs people to help with day classes. We beg to get into the schools, so we can’t not show up.
We have the Awareness Party
at Bancroft Hall on 4/9. Bring a dish to pass and auction items. Don’t
forget about our Awareness Ride on 4/30. That is a day to yell and dance at passersby
that motorcyclists are out there. And the best part-it is a lot of fun! We have event fliers!!
for Burns: The Region
is having a Bake Sale at Hickory Lounge on 4/23 thanks to Frog. Please get your
chef’s hat on and whip up something special to put in the bake sale and don’t forget to purchase some of the tasty
treats as all proceeds go to the Genesee Township Fire Department.
Things are moving forward
for our 16th Annual Bikin’ for Burns. Please put it on your
calendars to come on out volunteer and party on 5/6 & 5/7. Still need someone
to take on vendors-contact Sassy 810-919-5078.
Bubbles is in the creative
mode making glass angels. See her Facebook page for examples (some have lights!). Order one today, they are really angelic. Eew, that was a bad joke but true. Be Safe!!
