ABATE Member Interviewed on KARE 11

Patriot's Day

From Minnesotans' Military Appreciation Fund:

This week, as our thoughts turn to a workday morning in New York 12 years ago, it's appropriate to once again make the promise to always remember and honor the sacrifices made by so many on that day and every day thereafter. Closer to home, more than 25,000 men and women from Minnesota have served our country since 9/11. We look to you for help thanking these veterans and their families, and we appreciate your continued support.

Please take a moment today to personally thank a Minnesota veteran.

Help needed to Promote the ABATE Rally at the Meeker County Fair

The ABATE of Minnesota Rally Committee will have a booth at the Meeker County Fair August 2nd and 3rd to promote the 25th annual ABATE of Minnesota State Rally, which will be held at the same location August 23-25, 2013. And your help is needed. This is very easy and fun work and your help will make our Rally a huge success.

2013 ABATE Rally Will Be Here Soon

Get ready for a weekend of biker fun, biker friendship and biker music. The 25th annual ABATE of Minnesota State Rally will be one you don’t want to miss! August 23rd through the 25th the Meeker County Fairgrounds in Litchfield, MN will be the place to be.

Celebrate Freedom – Go for a Ride

I wish all of ABATE of Minnesota’s freedom fighters a very happy Independence Day! As more and more Americans continue to accept a country based on government’s protection of people from themselves, I believe that bikers lead the way in understanding what true liberty is. For me and all the motorcyclists I know, to not ride is unthinkable. And to ride under oppressive “one size fits all” mandates is a life less lived.
