Memorial Day is a day for each of us to pause and give thanks to those who have served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can have the freedoms we enjoy. Whether you do so in a private moment or a public setting, I encourage you to find some time over this long weekend to remember the meaning of this holiday and those it is meant to honor. As we plan for beach vacations and holiday sales and extra-long rides, we should also take a moment to remember the importance of honor, gratitude, thankfulness, and love of country to help keep the true spirit of this special holiday alive.
Please give thanks and honor the fallen.
About JW Haupt
I have been involved with the WCBC since 2007, a member since 2011, and a more active member beginning in 2013. During that time, I have thoroughly enjoyed my years of involvement as a rider, a member, a Ride Leader, an Event Coordinator and Volunteer, and a member of the Executive Committee (2014-2022) as Ride Captain, Vice President, and President. I've organized weekday and weekend rides including the multi-level Tuesday/Thursday group rides in Bear and the MS Training Rides out of People’s Plaza which can draw 50-75 or more riders on a given day.
I’ve remained an involved member of the Club not only because I enjoy cycling, but because I enjoy the time that I get to spend with all of you. And I want to do everything that I can to make your riding experience one that you look forward to each day.
