On behalf of the Shiloh Riders MC and WIMZ, I would like to give a BIG thanks to everyone who participated in our Toy Run Sunday. Numbers are not in yet, but looks like more toys and less money than in previous years. The 1st family sign up to request toys is Saturday Nov 6th from 9am-6pm and the 2nd is Wednesday Nov 10th from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Sevier County community center. Recipients will need necessary forms of state assistance and proof of each child (SS card and/or birth certificate).
Gene Odom, who was head of security and survived the crash, will on my show today at 3:45. We will pay tribute to those who died, Gene will tell the story and also talk about Coach Leonard Skinner, the bands namesake, who passed away recently.
