Talked about the sponsors, the miles, the goal to raise money for activities for residents with Alzheimer's at Cedar Community. Announced the West Bend radio AM 1470 WBKV will be carrying live tour updates on the morning show. I'll phone in a couple times a week and speak with show host Bob Bonefant and bring everyone up to speed on my mileage, my whereabouts and the latest adventure.
I showed everyone at the meeting the photo of me and my dad and my sister on the Steffes 'baby-seat bike' from 1965 and told the story about my dad getting pulled over by the cops in Shorewood. "You can't do that," said the officer to my father. My dad pushed off the curb and said, "Arrest me."
I know my father, who has Alzheimer's, doesn't remember the story but he laughed the hardest when he heard it!

All it takes is a $100 contribution to the Amazing Ride for Alzheimer's and a photo. About a half-dozen people have already submitted donations, photos and requests.
We will post the photo atop the webpage in a 'special tribute' section. There are about 20 available days open for special tribute - - where I will spend that day riding in someone's honor.
Send a postal address and I'll also mail a post card from the road.
You can email the picture to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send a name and some contact info. The check can be made out to Cedar Community Foundation. Be sure to label 'Amazing Ride' in the lower left memo section.
This year's tour leaves June 27 for Nova Scotia.
The West Bend Noon Rotary will be hosting a public speaking engagement about the tour April 28 starting at 4 p.m. at West Bend tap & tavern.
