Our second stop today was up at Hardtails for the Shield of Faith benefit to help the families devastated by the events of May 17th 2015. We had a good crowd, and the food and entertainment was top notch. This was my second lunch today… Don’t ask. Anyway, it was a great event, and we enjoyed seeing friends.
All the Christian Unity members met this evening for the final planning for the Benefit on the 30th of April at Hardtails in Georgetown. The benefit will raise money to help those effected by the tragic events of May 2015. We will have brisket plates, silent auction and two bands, plus Bandido Fox has agreed to play for us. It’s looking like it should be a pretty good time.
We had a good group at the Christian Unity meeting this month, and we talked about up coming events like the COC&I State Rally April 8 – 10th out in Tyler and the Christian Unity benefit for Waco families at the end of April on the 30th at Hardtails. Preparations are underway and progressing. I was feeling kind of mono-chromatic this evening as you can see below.
We attended the memorial service today for Dean, the owner of Hog Alley and Hardtails up in Georgetown. The service was attended by several hundred people, leaving standing room only in the funeral home. Dean was clearly much loved. I don’t think I ever met Dean myself, although I certainly recognized him from seeing him around Hog Alley on some of the occasions we visited there. There were lots of remembrance stories shared at the service, and even afterwords while standing around outside talking with people. He will be missed.
We headed up to Hardtails around lunch time to attend the Bike Wash being put on by the U.S. Military Vets MC. We took the car though, and the actual washing area was kind of small for cars, so we didn’t get it washed. But, we joined the raffle and socialized for a few minutes and then headed in for some food. They have really good burgers at Hardtails. They cost a bit more than Mc D’s, but they are worth it. We also got to spend a few minutes visiting our friends at the Alley, and while we were then we looked at some of the bikes they had for sale, but I’m not sure my arms are long enough to reach the handlebars of some of those stretched monsters. But of course it is always fun to dream.
