President's Letter

June 2024

Happy June, Saddle Sore Riders!

The exciting month of June is ahead of us, and we have some fantastic events and updates to share. May brought us a plethora of outstanding riding days thanks to the May Gray weather. A special shoutout to Cindy Merritt for hosting and coordinating an exceptional ride at Chihuahua Valley. Everyone had a wonderful time, and this trip is definitely a keeper with its wonderful weather and beautiful scenery.

Upcoming Events:

· June 29: Mark your calendars for Jeanne Kelly’s famous taco ride! Jeanne’s rides are always a blast, and this one promises to be no different. When the ride ends, treat your taste buds to delightful tacos from Team Tumbleson at the American Legion at 11 AM. Even if you don’t join the ride, be sure to stop by for the tacos!

Members in Need of Support:

While I strive to keep my messages upbeat, it's important to remember those in our community who need our thoughts and prayers. It seems like we’re all contributing to the medical profession lately. Please keep the following members in your prayers:

· Christina Spengler: Recovering from a fall.

· Maylynn Motley: Undergoing knee replacement surgery.

· Jeanne Kelly: Having cataract surgery.

· Danny Gonzalez: Recovering from a pre-ride foot injury.

· Becky Van De Walker: Continuing her brave fight against cancer.

It is also with great sadness that I share the passing of Robert Verbree. Robert was a longtime member of Saddle Sore, always willing to help anyone in need. He will be greatly missed. Please pray for his family during this difficult time.

A Reminder:

Life is short, so spend time with those you love and do things that bring you joy. As Ferris Bueller wisely said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

Looking forward to seeing you all out there, enjoying the rides and each other's company.

Stay safe and happy riding!
