The March Membership Meeting will feature a presentation by Genea Barnes, author of “Don’t Forget Me”: Ghost Bikes–A Photographic Memorial.
After traveling around the country in search of ghost bikes, Genea has put together a collection of beautiful and haunting photos.
For those of you who don’t know what a “ghost bike” is, you probably have seen an entirely white bike placed by the roadside, surrounded with flowers. They are memorials to cyclists who have died while out cycling, usually due to a fatal run-in with a motor vehicle. Genea captures the stories behind these bikes through her camera.
Copies of Genea’s book will be available for sale after the meeting. For more on Genea’s book, go to http://geneabarnes.com/blog/book/.
A BIG thank-you to Carol Raff for volunteering to handle the post-meeting refreshments. I think she has something unusual planned…so that’s another reason not to miss the March meeting!!!
And there are still openings if you’d like to provide the food after future meetings. All volunteers get FREE admittance to the meeting, with seating in the VIP section of the auditorium. 🙂
