Happy New Year Everyone!!! Hope everyone had a great Holiday season and is ready for the upcoming year.
Our Mandarin Riders were PROUD to be presented a plaque from the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch for our contributions. This was presented to us at the Turkey in the Ground event which was AWESOME as always. Thank you all that attended. There will be a formal presentation in February by the Sheriff at a District meeting. We’re happy to make a difference in a child’s life and what better way than to help the Boys at the Ranch.
I just want to mention that the Riders hosted the Moosehaven Christmas Bingo for the Residents on December 19th and the turnout was phenomenal…Residents had a really good time and want us to make it an annual event…A big thank you to all my Moose Riders who came out and made this event so successful and to the Lodge Members that donated Christmas cookies… and a BIG TY to Fred Baker and his wife as Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus. We also joined together with the JAM Car Club to assist them in helping a needy family here in Jax. Linda’s daughter, Michelle is affiliated with the Club and asked the Riders to join in. And our own Santa Fred will join us also. It was a BUSY day between these 2 events.
In January (date TBD) the Riders will be going to the FSYR Boys Ranch to bring Christmas cheer to the Boys (and future Girls)…Kohn house is being converted into a “sibling” house that should open in January and we look forward to visiting and meeting the new Residents as well as our current Boys. All Moose Members are invited to come along with us. It’s a GREAT time as always. We also continue to do our monthly donation to the Mandarin Food Bank to support our community. I also would like to thank Bob and Faye for doing the shopping for the Angel Tree. We’re thrilled to make two little ones wishes come true. Great job, Bob & Faye. Again, all that we do is made possible by Moose members coming out and supporting our Bingo (all profits go to charity), so if you haven’t already done so, come on out on a Wednesday at 7 p.m. and try your luck, and you may even have some fun!!! We have a great crew and Sam and Linda are doing a fantastic job calling the numbers. A special TY to Sam for stepping up to the plate for the Riders.
Wishing the BEST to all in the New Year!!
