Our club is hosting an ATV Charity Ride for Juvenile Diabetes “Because of Brandon” on July 23rd at 9 am, behind the FireShack Restaurant, 101 4th Street Ironton. I need volunteers to help with the event. We will start setting up at 7 am. I need help setting up our pop ups, hanging banners, sign posts, directing people to park and unload at the high school and where they need to line up.
Commissioner Doug Houge will speak to the group about 9:45 am. The guided rides will leave by 10 am, to the Miller Black Bear Trail area. The Deerwood Police and the Fire Departments will be there to help with the public safety, and they will guide people down County Road 30 and 34 to Iverson Road.
I would like your help taking people for a guided ride around the Miller Black Trail area. We will break the riders into smaller groups for the ride and bring them back around 1 pm for a lunch special at the FireShack. After lunch we will add up the donations and hand the money to Doug and take pictures.
McDaddy’s Donut Garage is offering free donuts in the morning. I will have a donation bucket at both businesses. On line donations can be made at http://brandon2022.givesmart.com please save the date and let’s raise some money for Juvenile Diabetes Education. I will send everyone a reminder next week. If you can volunteer, please email me back.

As we have mentioned we are riding in the Crosby July 4th parade at 11 am. We will get our line up number from one of the firemen in front of the legion and line up somewhere behind the Legion. You can decorate your machine as patriotic as you like.
Let’s gather at the Wille’s at 9 am, to leave for Ironton by 9:30 a.m., it always takes a little time to get organized.
After the parade Dave & Mary Wille, are inviting everyone over to their home for pot luck and a bonfire afterwards. (23695 Oak Lane, Deerwood) From Hwy 210 take Agate Shores Road, turn right at the T, to the second street on the left. If you have family visiting they are welcome to join us. There is plenty of parking at their home and you can unload there and we can drive directly to the parade.
Jenny is bringing smoked ham for sandwiches and sloppy Joe’s will be provided. Please bring a dish to share, your own beverages and a lawn chair.
