Blessed Be All

Everyone that came out and enjoyed the event & the party this past Sunday, blessed be all.

Behind that party, is a business that required countless hours, hours from which Joe, Brenda and Myself volunteered to do. We have had a good team of volunteers, but a business requires more time needed. Of which we couldn’t ask of them to do so much work without pay.

It has taken a toll on our health as well as our own businesses. It is our choice at this point as the three main officers of this charity to stop actively fundraising.

Tim Adkins our founder put us in place to make this the success it was. Not dealing with the finances or the day to day operations, but being the voice behind it, and rallying people together for a cause that started as an informal event.

We as the board of Children Of Fallen Riders, will disburse the funds of this organization to only our local area. We have grown nationwide and have helped nationwide, have received from nationwide. We simply do not have the backing to continue. We have tried in various ways to rally support, but have not been as successful as we had hoped.

It was an emotional meeting telling our key group, those who have worked and sweated many events in the blazing sun. My eyes filled with tears, my heart has a void today as I write this. We are blessed to know all that came out year after year to support us.

To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn

To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

Peace to you all – Susie Kleiner – Children of Fallen Riders – President

    Peace to all of you (Susie, Tim, Joe) for putting in countless hours to support such a great cause for friends and the people who you never met. Your kind, generous and unselfishness is unmeasurable and words can’t put the gratitude we all have for the leaders of this organization.

    I had fun at every event and every event I attended was professionally organized. I just hope the new charity does it half as good, but reading some of the posts on Facebook it sure seems they have dug a somewhat of a hole. Let’s just hope the powers to be can find the time and do it right the first time just like COFR.

    Miss you guys and will see you soon!
