Program - 
Gunnar introduced Bob Sondgeroth.  Bob spoke about the St. Jude's ride he participates in.   A group of bikers raise money for st. Jude's children's hospital by obtaining donations and riding their motorcycles from Rock Falls to Memphis, where St. Jude's is located.   100% of funds raised go directly to St. Jude's hospital.  Families of patients treated at St. Jude's never receive a bill for treatment, housing or food.   Thank you Bob for your commitment to this worthy cause.  Bob's goal is to raise $5,000 this year and donations may be sent to Bob's home at 2202 Scott Street in Rock Falls.
