Genesee and Shiawasee Counties.  RC: Randy Wilson

Hello to all!!  We had Pam Hegge and Russ Angell as guest this month!  For our usual greeting to newcomers: “Thanks for giving a shit!!” 

Treasurer and Secretary Reports were read and accepted.     

Mike (Kritter) and Awareness Report Time:  The Awareness Team is, as usual, making motorcycle awareness a top priority and working hard.  However, Mike could use some more Awareness Instructors to make even more people aware, so if interested please let him know!!!Lets make sure people see us, as motorcycle AWARENESS is more important now more then EVER!!

Legislative Officer for Shiawasee County-Mark (The Bus) Berger.  L.O. for Genesee County-Marte.  Freedom Fighters, hopefully you made it to the Celebration at the Capital on on June 6!!!  ABATE has a lot to be thankful about.  Don't worry about wearing your helmets or not wearing them, it is your CHOICE!!!  Make sure to check out the article in the May Rider by Donde. 

Cares and Concerns for Region 20:  Happy Anniversary and Birthday to all for June!!!  Let's keep Liz's Mom, Sassy's Step-Dad and Jeremy!! 

Cupcake's Product Corner: Lots of the old product is now gone, so new stuff can be ordered.  However, we still have towels for sale, think about using them around the beach or pool.

Upcoming events to look for, the Rave Run on Sept. 22; Fall Color Tour on Oct. 13 and Halloween Party on Oct. 27. 

Randy's RC  Report:  12th Annual Bikin For Burns, with wishy washy weather we did pretty good!!!  Gaines and Forest Township almost received all the funds they needed.  A HUGE  THANK YOU to all that attended, donated, supported and volunteered for the event!!  Thanks to Missy's mom and dad for their donation!  Great Job!!!  We couldn't have done it without the support of a fantastic Mayor and very supportive Chief of Police!!  No incidents, except Kritter dropping his bike on his leg—he is better now—no more cane, or so we think. 

The Axemen Fun Run, had a great turn out as well.  Thanks to Rocky's Great Outdoors and all others that participated, volunteered and donated!!  ABATE Region 20 gives the Axemen MI-6 a tremendous thank you for supporting Bikin' for Burns!!!  Thank you to all fire fighters out there for risking their lives every day!!!

Field Meet is just about here and we will have more details next month!  Great bands, great people, vendors, food, swimming, games, and much more to be had at this ABATE of Mi Event.  Should we say, what happens at Field Meet says at field meet???  Thanks to all who assisted with making another event successful. 

Please don't forget to push the bike raffle tickets.  No July meeting for Region 20 and a combined meeting on Sept. 9 in Shiawasee. 

For the open discussion, JoMamma announced she had a GREAT membership drive at Bikin' for Burns, so thanks to all that signed up or renewed. 

Bubbles presented Ray Martin with an plaque and calendar from the Hands Free Man for his assistance on his journey.  Too bad he was cut off in Bowling Green and had to grab his handlebars! 

50/50 this month was won by Gary (Weeno) and he donated back!!!  Thanks so much, Gary!!! Great turn out for this meeting with over 50 attendees.
