Lone Star Ride Board President Jacque Borel sent this message to all former Lone Star Ride participants — riders and crew.
The Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS has reached the end of the road, but there are a number of items stored in the LSRFA storage facility which may be of value to previous riders and crew.
The storage unit, at 4641 Production St., Unit No. 25, will be unlocked from 10 a.m. until noon this Saturday, Feb. 8, so that former participants can pick up whatever supplies and equipment they wish.
The storage unit must be emptied by the end of February, so all materials which remain after this Saturday will be either donated or otherwise disposed of. If there are questions, please contact Jacque Borel, board chair.
Production Street is off Lucas Avenue between Maple Avenue and Harry Hines Boulevard in Oak Lawn.
The beneficiaries have already been to the storage locker and gotten whatever they can use. Items include camping equipment, bottled water, rakes, brooms, bike racks, ice chests, jerseys, shirts and a variety of other memorabilia.
Borel assures us that the tents do not come equipped with the rocks that always seemed to be strategically placed under each and every tent during the ride.
A number of items of historical importance will be donated to the LGBT archives at University of North Texas.
