2016 MS Citrus Bike Tour

A HUGE Thank You to Ken, Mike Pierce, Richard, Sean, Brenda and Larry for helping us man the Bravo Rest Stop for the 2016 MS Citrus Bike Tour.

It was a hot day but the cyclists were all appreciative of our efforts and thankful we were there to give them some nourishment and encouragement during their long bike ride.

This was a new event for D.E.A.R.S. We had several “VoluntEARS” riders from Walt Disney World.

Additional photos are on the D.E.A.R.S. Facebook page.

Again, thank you so much for taking time out from your busy schedules to assist with this worthy cause. You were appreciated!!

D.E.A.R.S. New Members

We have added 2 new members to our D.E.A.R.S. Club this past week. Welcome to Jim Baxter AK2W, a Disney employee (Sr. Technical Architect), and also Scott Vawter W6SEV, an Operating Participant member who works for MEARS.

The HUB information has been updated and we passed out 200 flyers at the West Clock event. We are hoping this will aid in getting the word out about the wonderful opportunities within our Club.

Once again, welcome Jim and Scott!!
