Saturday, March 4, was the start of our events at Nazareth Children’s Home for 2017.
A group of about ten riders, eight bikes total met at Speedway HD and departed at 12:15 for the ride to Nazareth, in Rockwell, NC.
At the Home, we were greeted by more volunteers and guests, plus the residents and staff from Nazareth. It is truly a blessing to give these young people some attention.
We enjoyed hamburgers and hotdogs thanks to Speedway HD and cake and ice cream provided by our "Rockwell Gang". And to everyone that helps set up and cook...THANK YOU! We all know who really makes this party happen. The volunteers are the best!
After we ate, we always like to recognize all of the children with birthdays in that particular quarter and then we (I) get to make a spectacle of ourselves by singing Happy Birthday to them. Then the children receive their gifts provided by all of the WONDERFUL people who brought the gifts.
I truly ask you to seriously think about helping us with your presence and choosing of a gift from our wish list, and coming with us. The material gifts are very nice, but so is your presence at the home for the children. That means more than anything. And I ask you this, because the interest for the Birthday Parties isn't the same as Christmas and these kids need to know they're thought of throughout the year.
And for our regulars, THANK YOU! And we look forward to seeing everyone again. Our next party is May 6, 2017. The "Wish list" will be posted about a month prior to the party at BikersWithACause.com.
Thank you, Speedway HD, Bob Karney Law Firm, and The Carolinas’ Full Throttle Magazine, for helping us get the word out!
