Monday is Martin Luther King Day
Date When Observed and Celebrated: The third Monday in January.
Born on January 15, 1929, Martin Luther King Jr. grew to become one of the greatest Social Activists the world has ever known. At 35, he became the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace prize. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968 while making a speech from the balcony of his hotel room in Memphis, Tennessee.
His birthday became a National Holiday by an act of Congress in 1983. Many consider it a day to serve your community.
Birthdays/anniversaries we are celebrating this week:
Sunday: BikerEric - Eric from Maryland
Daytona Angel - Angela from Texas
Wednesday: DOdgeRam1500 - Chris from New Jerson
Friday: Steve48 - Steve from South Carolina
If it's your birthday/anniversary/special occasion let us know and we will celebrate with you.
TOTM is back with a little twist. This year we are going to do it a little different. Post a picture and a write up of your ride between the 1st-21st then we vote the 22nd-months end. After the voting the winner will be messaged for email info. The email is for the digital TOTM award. Printing and shipping them was getting pricey and time consuming. The awards will be printable on your end and then you can frame them. Thanks to Keith (charged392) for heading this up!
It's time to look forward to the 2020 Rally!! There is a thread started for information and input. Anyone may submit a proposal. We'll need to know where and when (we usually do June/July to accommodate those with kiddos), hotel options/costs, and activities available. We'll be glad to help you with stuff if you are nervous about submitting a proposal. Mostly, it's helpful to have someone familiar with the area heading it up so we know where to or NOT to stay and things to do.
Chatroom is back!! Join us every Thursday evening at 7:00 CST for chatroom. See what going on with the rest of the HTC'ers.
If you have a prayer request you would like to share either add it to this thread or PM me.
