I asked all Region Awareness Coordinators to give a report of all the number of students they have taught and guess what? Yep, only two Regions have texted me numbers - Regions 11 and Region 5! Is there a reason why you other Regions can’t let me know how many students you have taught or other areas that you may have went to and emphasized awareness? I guarantee you that I cannot order supplies in time for the Seminar unless you get me those numbers. So PLEASE, take the time to contact me via text or phone message (419-349-8075) and let me get this done. It’s a big job to get the best prices and supplies needed to help save lives and I cannot do it ALONE!
Today is Veteran’s Day and I’m very proud of the fact that I’m a Marine Corp Veteran during the Vietnam War. I never went to Vietnam, just Okinawa in ’75. Denise and I were talking about it this morning and believe it or not, it was 43 years ago. Without her by my side, I never would have gotten the rank of E-5 (Sergeant) as quickly as I did and I am truly grateful.
I recently did a program at the Monroe Center for Healthy Aging (Senior Center), with the help of Denise, Julie (Coco), Joe and Laurie. It went pretty smooth. There were almost a hundred seniors and staff there and the presentation was well received with accolades and appreciation for doing it. You would have not believed how many individuals used to ride and shared stories about their experiences. There just wasn’t enough time to talk to everyone. They were so nice and easy to socialize with. Just think, every time one of those persons shares the message from the presentation, it spreads the word to that many more people, making a true impact for awareness and saving lives.
I got a phone call this morning from our Products Rep, Hot Rod Sally, and she has some really good ideas for distracted driving pins and wristbands. It is really cool that someone is trying to get the word out in a different forum and I will help her anyway I can to help save lives. Great Job Sally!
I just got done writing an article for The Rider Report and the Editor, Mark liked it. Look for it in the November issue. If you can get a copy, check it out and let me know what you think. ABATE will be well represented in his magazine so let’s help him by getting a copy and utilizing his supporters.
One last thing, please think of the innocent Americans who have lost their lives in the recent mass shootings. Their families are devastated over their loss and thinking and praying for them will go a long way and God bless all ABATE members. We too have lost some awesome members from different regions.
Have a wonderful holiday season, create some beautiful memories by spending time with those you love, and be safe. Best wishes for good health and prosperity to each and every one of you.
May the road rise to meet you and the wind always be at your back,
State Awareness Director
