Age, race, or station in life does not matter in The Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA). Curley Lipson (see picture), age 86, is a WWII veteran from Gorman, Texas. He is a member of The Heart of Texas Son Riders in Brownwood, Texas.
Curley rides his motorcycle each month from Gorman to Brownwood for CMA meetings. He is an inspiration and delight to all who have had the opportunity to meet him. Curley has attended CMA functions in San Saba. He has attended the CASA motorcycle rallies in Riesen Park each year.
CMA's goal is to lend a helping hand and make a positive difference in the community. San Saba's Pecan Valley Son Riders are actively involved throughout the year with events and benefits for San Saba. They want to make the community aware of CMA's involvement and contribution to the San Saba community, as well as other areas.
The Ministerial Alliance is an agency set up for families and individuals in need of emergency assistance. Churches of San Saba and donations make this great organization possible. CMA cooked hamburgers on the courthouse square and all donations went to the Ministerial Alliance. CMA was delighted to extend a helping hand for such a great cause.
The annual CASA Motorcycle Rally, which is held in Riesen Park, is assisted by CMA members. CASA is a children's advocacy organization to aide legal needs for children. Rally proceeds go to the CASA organization.
CMA's "Run for the Son" is an annual event to raise monies for Christian outreach around the world. CMA members collect donations and ride a 100-mile "motorcycle run" for the donations collected. Donations are distributed all over the world for missionaries in need of transportation, Bibles and supplies to reach secluded areas. CMA donates motorbikes to many of the missionaries.
Christmas time in San Saba is one of CMA's rewarding and joyful seasons. They donate gifts and visit nursing home residents. A hug, smile, or visit is worth everything to CMA.
San Saba has a "Toy Run" each year during Christmas time. CMA enjoys volunteering for this annual event.
The San Saba "Parade of Lights" is fun and fulfilling for CMA members. CMA invites all bikers to join them in the parade for this joyful and fun-filled annual community event.
Mission San Saba is an annual event for all churches, volunteers, and donations to assist a family with a complete home makeover. CMA Chapters from different areas donate materials, money, and labor towards completion of the project within one week. Donna Blossman, President of The Pecan Valley Son Riders, had a vision to help one family a year with a complete home makeover. Churches, individuals, and other organizations joined in all over San Saba and other counties to make this "one-week challenge" a reality. Again, CMA enjoys lending a helping hand and making a positive difference in the community.
CMA invites individuals and families interested in Christian values and activities to visit The San Saba Pecan Valley Son Riders the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Vee-B's Bar-B-Q, located on Hwy 16N in San Saba. See you there, July 8th!
