OLD BUSINESS
We are ready to apply for ABATE’s 501c4 status

 

A dual axle trailer for sale was found in Gaston for $895. We already have a welder and David Brasel will go look at it and see how much work is needed for it to be in good driving condition.

 

ABATE awards a special Recruiter’s patch for members who bring in at least 10 new members. This patch can’t be purchased and must be earned.

 

NEW BUSINESS
Our new meeting location doesn’t have a kitchen. All members voted to give small donations so lunch can be brought in at each meeting.

 

Membership dues were raised to $25 throughout the State.

 

ABATE has some shirts for sale and an order will be placed for tank tops for both men and women

 

Debra is working on getting patches, shirts, and other ABATE items to either sale or give out when ABATE takes part at an event.

 

Joel is donating a motorcycle. It needs a new battery and other small repairs for the bike to run properly. Brett volunteered to do all the work on his weekends. ABATE will raffle it off when it is ready and in riding condition

 

Debra would like to have a ABATE rally at the spring Bike Week in Myrtle Beach next year.

 

This year’s Motorcycle Awareness Rally did not bring a big crowd and no one rang the bell to honor the fallen in 2017.   ABATE will ring the bell at the October 7th rally to honor the fallen in 2017.

Tony Culpepper has agreed to take the lead for next year’s rally. All members voted yes to let Tony coordinate it. The date is already secured but he will need volunteers to help set everything up. All members also voted to invite the Lexington ABATE Chapter to help raise money to finance the event.

 

Debra is working on getting all South Carolina Chapters involved together to assist in raising money for the State Level ABATE.
