Bikers Rally for Rosenberg Library

Starbucks in Friendswood and Bikers donated $331.00 to the Rosenberg Library on a cold winter night, in Southeast Houston on Friday, January 30th, 2009.

The rally began on FM 518 and 528, at the Starbucks Friendswood drive-thru. Alicia, our barista extraordinaire, arranged for the group to sample tea and coffee in 5 Starbucks.

Instrumental in the fundraising were the CMA Bikers' group, Christian Motorcyclists Association in donating and running this service outreach to the Rosenberg Library in Galveston, Texas. Two groups noticed were the Lighthouse Riders and the Christ Riders out of Texas City and Pearland. Thanks to the Lighthouse Riders for hosting this fundraiser, and all the bikers who came out and participated.

The next morning, several CMA bikers came out to Galveston to aid the homeless on Winnie and 19th Street. The library staff welcomed them to the Rosenberg Library with a tour of the History Center and Museum.

Thank you so much to the CMA group, and Starbucks, esp. Alicia from Friendswood, for their support of Galveston and the library.
