Motorcycle run for Mobile Meals planned for May 14

MotorcycleRunWEB

The Meeting Place Senior Center is sponsoring a Motorcycle Run for Mobile Meals on Saturday, May 14. The Event will begin at the Saluda, N.C. Fire Hall with registration from 9:30 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. Kickstands up at 11 a.m. After a pleasant ride through scenic Polk County, the journey ends at The Meeting Place with lunch and entertainment.

 

Food, entertainment, and door prizes will be available at both the beginning and the end of the event. There will be coffee and pastries at the Fire Hall as participants register and Patsy Cline (east Tennessee’s Erin Shultz) will perform her own very special music from “Walking after Midnight” to “Your Cheatin’ Heart” while riders gather, eat, and prepare to ride. Several door prizes will be given away before the ride takes to the road.

 

At The Meeting Place, you can have a hamburger and all the fixings while you listen to the band 176 and take a tour of the beautiful garden and check to see if you have won a door prize. Even if you don’t ride a motorcycle, you can join us for lunch.

 

This “Garden Run” benefits the Polk County, N.C., Mobile Meals program. In order to add nutritional value to the home delivered meals supplied to our homebound seniors as well as the on-site meals at The Meeting Place I and II, the senior center has developed a garden project worked by volunteers and paid for by generous donors.

 

The ongoing project will augment the regular food budget with fresh vegetables and fruits as well as providing those items to The Meeting Place participants to reduce their food costs. In addition, the project will give seniors an opportunity to “dig in the dirt” and to get together for an old fashioned bean-snapping party.

 

For information about the ride, or the garden, call The Meeting Place at 828-894-0001.
