By Special Request

John, from over at Going Gently asked me about some of the volunteer work that Mike and I do with the Juda Fore Fathers

All money raised from the fundraising that is done by the Fore Fathers goes back into the community. The FF have provided winter clothes for kids at the school when they are needed, had food drives to donate money and food to local food pantries in several area communities, gas cards and monetary gifts to families that are hit with medical emergencies, fires, or extended hospital stays.  Last year a community enrichment project was completed at the local park.  There is now a beautiful memorial walk with engraved memorial bricks to replace the old memorial that had decayed with time.  These are just a few of the things that Juda Fore Fathers is able to do with all the fundraising they do throughout the year.  I'm very proud to be a part of this group of volunteers and it's so fun to see things continue to grow with all their efforts. 

Memorial Dedication 

There is a Poker Run style ride that is predominately motor cycles, but cars and other mods of transportation are welcome to participate, there is a live auction, a silent auction and raffles.  The Juda Jolly Juniors are going to have games for the kids as well as the adult bike games after the ride.  There is a band on Friday night and Saturday night, as well as a chicken BBQ on Saturday night and breakfast on Saturday morning given by the Juda Fire Department. 

Here are a few pictures of prior year's happenings............
