I've been a member since 2005, a Sr. Ride Captain for most of that, and the Kentucky Ass't State Captain since 2015. There is no other group or organization that I'd rather be a part of than this. I always try to do the right thing. For me, this is definitely the right thing. If you're not a part of this organization and need more information, please contact me.
