2018 was an exciting year for Thin Blue Line LE MC. We were busy in our communities and helping others. Our year is always packed with various benefits and fundraisers for our first responders and community services. There is never a dull moment in this Club – we participate in as many benefits and events that our time allows.
We have annual participation in Back the Badge Ride; Texas Association of First Responders Wild Game Cook-off, Ride for the Fallen in Austin TX; Joey Barraza Memorial Ride in El Paso; Taking children to the Houston Rodeo; Bikes for Excellence; 4th of July parades across the community; Watermelon Run for the Fallen; Brazos Valley Annual 9/11 ride; Thin Blue Line Foundation Fajita Cook-off/fundraiser; Lonestar Rally, and Christmas shopping and toy drives in various communities.
A few highlights from the year that the Club participated in are:
