Charitable Work

I haven't done much the last couple of weeks because of nerve issues no, not nervous issues :). But the HOG chapter did supply volunteers for the Concord Friends Program BBQ held at the dealership. And, the volunteers, plus others of the chapter supplied a bunch of food for the event.

I forgot to take many pictures - actually only took them as we were setting up, so not everyone is pictured.

Unfortunately, after a week of 80-90* weather, it was a cool and rainy day with a high of 50* (I know because the business next door has a sign that displays a continuous read out of the temp.

Additionally, the dealership didn't have any promotions or any other activities - not even the beginner motorcycle course that is held most weekends. Between these factors, there weren't a whole lot of people visiting the dealership, so the BBQ didn't fare as well as we hoped.

We did have a good time the 4.5 hours that we were there and raised just shy of $300. All food/drinks were donated, so 100% of the money goes to the services of the program. And the director of the charity had ties to food pantries and elder care services so the leftover food was directly given to other worthy organizations later that afternoon.

UPDATE: I got a copy of the latest Friends Program newsletter, and look what they had in there:

P.S. I meant "photos". Also, thanks for including the disposition of the food that was left. Great planning!
