There will be a motorcycle ride in Jimi’s honor on Saturday September 26. It will start (If you ride) at Auto Alliance (where he worked) and end at Lake Erie Metro park. There is a $4.00 entrance fee to the park and we’ll be asking for small donations. The B-B-Q/Picnic is Pot Luck so please bring a dish to pass if you can. I don’t have the times or the route yet but as soon as I do (before the end of the week), I’ll post it here.
Meet AAI at 11:00am with kickstands up at 11:45. Everyone else meet at the Lake Erie Metro Park at 1:00.
More to come!
Here’s the email that I sent out just in case I missed anyone (Like I’d do that)
Well, I'm sure I've missed someone......but I hope not.... Here's the scoop: Saturday September 26th there will be a motorcycle ride and picnic in Jimi's honor, this is being done by the Michigan Patriot Guard riders and more specifically Terry Alvarez. The Ride will start at the Auto Alliance plant Vreeland Road entrance. The west entrance which of the 2 it is the entrance that is farthest away from the rt.75 overpass on Vreeland Road. 11:00 am staging, Kickstands up at 11:45 am for those who ride. The picnic will be at Lake Erie Metro park and I have reserved the "Blue Hereon" pavilion starting at 11:00 for those who don't ride. The address for the park is 32481 W. Jefferson Brownstown MI. 48173 (there is a $4.00 per vehicle entrance fee into the park). The picnic is a "Bring a dish to pass" event so please do so. Willie and I will be going to Costco and getting a bunch of burgers and dogs and maybe some bottled water for the crowd. If anyone wants to volunteer to grill or to bring something extra please respond to me and I'll make a list and email it out. If the weather is warm enough there is a wave pool at the park that the kids may enjoy, other than that please feel free to bring other outdoor things to play like volley ball, etc..... Oh yea there may be a "Pass the hat" type donation which we plan on donating all of the profits to the Patriot guard to disperse but it is just a maybe at this point. I'm sure I've forgotten things as I tend to be a bit scattered lately, If there's info that I missed I'll re-email AJ
