I saw something Beautiful this afternoon ... I'm used to hearing groups of motorcycles ride past my house here on Main St./ Rt. 20 in Esperance, but today I was working in my back room when I realized I was hearing a continual sound of bikes passing. When I went to look out my front window I saw so many bikers on both sides of the road, there must have been 100 or more. As I watched, they formed a line, each stopped at a neighbors house who had opened their home to a family less fortunate. Each biker stopped to give donations to a family who had lost everything. Seeing this touched me so. What a wonderful community, and what Wonderful people. My you all be blessed.
