Ride Report for Ride Captain Silverhawk
NJ and NEPA members teamed up with American Legion Riders to help grant a Veteran’s wish.  The Twilight Wish Foundation asked us to help deliver a new, and much needed, motorized wheelchair to Air Force Veteran Thomas Conklin.  And, that we did!
We escorted the new wheelchair, adorned with a big red bow, to the nursing home, where there were many residents and staff members waiting outside for us.  They told Tom that something special was being delivered, and he thought it was going to be a piano!  Surprise!
There were some presentations made, we were offered refreshments while Tom was transferred to his new wheels, and then there were plenty of photo ops!  Tom wanted some photos taken with the bikes, and we happily obliged.  While setting us up, the photographer said, “I’d like all Tom’s guardians to surround him.”  Bikes were moved and photos taken.
We were proud and honored to have been Tom’s guardians yesterday.
