On June 20, the Red Knights Firefighter Motorcycle Club, Illinois Chapter 5 held its 2nd annual “Dave Sessions Memorial Ride.”
This letter is to publicly acknowledge and thank the Beardstown Fire Department for the support and brotherhood we received from them in making this 2013 ride a success. Dave was a 20-year member of the Randolph Township Fire Department before losing his fight with cancer. We hold the event to honor Dave and to raise funds for the Dave Sessions Scholarship Fund and other charities such as St. Jude and Operation Santa.
The Beardstown Fire Department offered to serve as a rest stop along our 250-mile journey and supply refreshments and a cooling station for our nearly 90 riders. The stop was perfect due to the preparations and execution by the fire personnel of Beardstown Fire Department. These are attributes of which I am sure the residents of Beardstown are familiar.
