Bringing everyone together is a mutual desire to help children. The annual Rileigh and Raylee Angel Ride is organized to raise money to help families of children who have medical needs that insurance won’t cover. The contributions raised so far have allowed for 489 disbursements to grateful families.

Friday’s musical lineup starts with Waylon Thibodeaux at 7:00 p.m., and continues with Chuck Wicks at 9:00 p.m.

Saturday concerts begin at 4:00 p.m. with Todd Simpson & Mojo Child, followed by Confederate Railroad at 7:00 and winding up with the grand finale by The Charlie Daniels Band at 9:00 p.m

In addition to the outstanding performances, visitors can enjoy a bike show and judging, silent auction, and raffles. Food and trade vendors provide opportunities for meals, snacks and a variety of artistic treasures. And the children’s tent offers plenty of activities to keep the young ones entertained.

The non-stop, escorted Angel Ride at 2:00 Saturday is open to anyone with a motorcycle 600cc or larger. What an impressive site it is to see such a large mass of bikes make the loop from Hwy. 98 to CR 104 to Hwy. 59 and back to Oak Hollow Farm!

The grounds open Thursday for campers and vendors, and Friday for everyone. For ticket prices and more details about the event, as well as information regarding the Angel Ride Foundation, please visit www.angel-ride.com.

During the Angel Ride weekend or any time of the year, enjoy the sunshine and sand at the beautiful beaches of the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast. With the help of Meyer Real Estate, you will find generous specials and Hot Deals that create an ideal combination of fun and affordability.

Paying Homage to Our Veterans

Please remember our veterans on their special day: Wednesday, November 11, 2009.

Please remember our veterans on their special day: Wednesday, November 11, 2009.

We will soon be celebrating Veteran’s Day. Wednesday, November 11, in fact. Just about everyone knows someone who is a veteran of military service. But do you know how Veteran’s Day came to be, and the original intention behind the designated day?

Initially called Armistice Day, it was to commemorate the temporary cease-fire between the Allies and Germany, which occurred on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of November in 1918. This eventually became a permanent truce at the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, officially ending World War I.

To pay homage to those who served and those who gave their lives to keep us safe and secure our freedoms, President Wilson called to cease all business for two minutes at 11:00 a.m. on November 11, 1919. He also encouraged the public to participate in parades and public meetings.

Eventually the recognized annual holiday was moved to Mondays, but more recently it was returned to its true day of significance, making November 11 the official holiday.

We encourage you to learn more about the history of Veteran’s Day by visiting any of the following links:
