Thanks everyone for a Great Event today!!!

Posted by Amanda on May 3, 2015 at 2:20 AM

I am really overwhelmed from the support received from the wonderful members of our branch and our family members who all pitched in today to make it such a success.    There are so many to thank, but I would really like to give Big Hugs to the DV Ride Committee, the Branch Committee and the members who came along today for your commitment to the Inaugural Ride for Awareness of Domestic & Family Violence.  

As you know a lot has gone on behind the scenes, and with members donating so much time to the day (and their families being impacted by their commitment to the day).  We certainly dealt with the elements this year, with the rain and flooding, but the skies were just right, and the sun shone enough to dry out the land for us.

It was great to see the purple shirts everywhere - the participants knew they only had to ask one of the purple people "The name we were given at the National AGM" and their query was looked after.

I am a little sad to see the countdown calendar say our event is over 6 hours since its finish - but perhaps that is just the weariness and lack of sleep.

Thanks to my amazing husband Adrian and daughter Kimberley for putting up with me for the past 10 months - (our son Nathan lives in Bris Vegas so wasn't around every day to hear my rants).  

So many people to thank... that's it for now!!! Amanda

Hello All
I would like to extend a BIG Thank you to all that helped today, without you the day would not have run as smooth as it did. We are very lucky to have so many great people in our branch.

Fantastic day Amanda, you and the team did so well organising this. I'm sure next year will be bigger and better, hopefully without the rain the few days beforehand. Looking forward to next year's DV Ride.

What a great day was had by everyone. I am sure that next year will be an even bigger event than this one was. Huge Ulysses hugs to everyone involved especially Amanda the leader of the day. Well done everyone.
