Bethany Spirit Riders take to road

On May 3, the Bethany Spirit Riders drove around the Lehigh Valley, including the Borough of Catasauqua, delivering support materials to families who currently have soldiers deployed overseas.

Many of the group are veterans themselves. The organization is a faith-based motorcycle club that regularly takes group trips to great locations like Gettysburg.

The families will be given a blue star for their windows, letting others in the community know they have a family member serving overseas.

They will also receive a letter of support and a soldier's prayer book to send in their next care package.

The letter encourages the soldier, letting them know that the church will be praying for them and encourage them that if a family need arises while their loved one is deployed, to let the congregation know.

This is all in preparation for Bethany's Tribute to Freedom, a free concert Sunday, May 18, 6:30 p.m., at the 1208 Brookside Road, Wescosville. The event features a full orchestra, color guard and prayer time for our soldiers.
