I'd like to take a minute to tell the MAC nation that our North Mississippi Chapter is coming on stronger than ever. Our Chapters' success thus far comes from our dedicated members and officers who are continuously thinking of new innovative ideas and putting them into action.
One thing for certain, as I take a step back and realize that A. we live in an over populated area and B. the amount of motorcyclists increase weekly and C. the number of fatalities due to driver negligence alone have significantly decreased since we opened our Chapter in 2011 there’s no doubt that our MAC efforts and contributions to our community have paid HUGE dividends. With this in mind, our campaign is needed more now than ever before.
With so many events and community businesses behind our mission, the drivers around here have been infected with the words "Please, Watch for Motorcycles" and it’s pretty exciting to have chapter meetings with over 100 people that attend and we run out of room. With that said, I would like to personally thank those who continuously strive to embed the MAC message and it’s hopeful that we’ll grow our membership as we plaster the MAC message everywhere in so many ways.
We have families that dedicate their days off to spend on the side of a busy road and intersections showing MAC yard signs or placing them in the most unusual places as to get more attention as well as distributing paper leaflets to windshields at local establishments.
We have businesses that have digital billboards to display our message, we participate in parades, educate drivers in our day to day conversations. I can go on and on but the message is clear, North Mississippi MAC Chapter shows our community that we have the drive and dedication to help the community.
Soon, the state of Mississippi will have an official license plate for your vehicle with the MAC message. How cool is that!? We are trying hard in this chapter to promote the tags. The tags are a win/win deal for MS and the chapters throughout the state. On the menu to the top left of the screen menu you should notice that we've included the addition to the MS MAC License Plate section. Click on that for more details.
As you can see, one of the most recent ideas was to have some index size flyers made that read our message and place them under windshield wipers of vehicles at our local Wal-Marts/Kroger stores.
Just yesterday, I personally went and installed one of our banners high upon some utility poles at a local business. We gotta take what we can get! As I've always said, " 6 people with passion can triple the work of 12 people without passion"
New for our web-site is a side bar called "People Passion"
Please take some time and look at these photos of the hard work and dedication in each and every person that lends a hand. Notice that theres folks in here that don't ride a motorcycle?
Please pass the word and stay informed and get involved.
Director of N. Mississippi M.A.C.
