Last week I hosted a show where I was joined by Matt Peine and Chad Brislawn from the Pearl City Life Riders RC. Matt is the Club President and Chad is the Road Captain for their club. This club rides to raise money for the Iowa Donor Network, and on top of their annual memorial ride, they have also joined with downtown Muscatine for Second Saturday. You will be able to find them along Second Street raising money and doing drives for different items. They work very hard for this community and if you get the chance to attend Second Saturday, seek them out and learn a little more about their Club’s mission.
Not only are they participating in Second Saturday, but there has also been a change made to one of the weekend events to line up with the Memorial Ride and Over the Edge, an event put on to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters. One of the important reasonings behind combining these events into the same day is that it helps drive business to our downtown. These different groups, while also looking to achieve their individual goals, are doing everything they can to also contribute to the community as a whole.
It has been an absolute pleasure being able to help them spread the word about the events and their missions, and I cannot wait for this amazing event coming our way in September. Until then I am looking forward to enjoying each Second Saturday between now and then. And if you get the chance, head to our amazing downtown and soak up some of that Pearl of the Mississippi charm during Second Saturday.
