Fall is FINALLY in the air! Not only does that mean cooler temperatures, it means cool happenings with the Chamber!

We will pedal into things with the Sloan Everett Pure Country Pedal Memorial Bike Ride this Saturday, October 19th. The event will kick-off at 8:30 a.m. and conclude with a meal around noon. Non-riders are invited to attend as well. The City of Breckenridge will have Trade Days at the City Trade Barn so be sure and browse through there, and the Community-Wide Garage Sales will be going throughout town. (For more info you can visit our Events on Facebook).

Mrs. Everett (mother of Sloan) made a sample batch of cookies for the event and brought a few by on Friday and, believe me, you won’t want to miss those! From start to finish, including getting the perfect amount of chocolate chips to the cookies, this ride is proof that the Everett family takes pride in honoring Sloan. Although I never had the privilege of meeting him, I feel his love for Breckenridge pouring into the community through his family. Per their request, all proceeds from the ride will be made to the Stephens County volunteer fire departments. How humbling is that? Drop by the park Saturday, even if you don’t ride, and show your support!

Stay tuned because the activities will keep rolling over the next few months! Mark your calendars now for Walker Street Trick-or-Treat–October 31st; Denim & Diamonds Annual Banquet–November 9th; Mingle-Jingle–November 15th; and Another Charlie Brown Christmas Parade—December 14th.

Albert Einstein said, “Life is like riding a bike. In order to keep your balance, you must keep moving forward.” May you all move forward in your endeavors this season!
