Motorcycle Club Prepares Students for School Year

When Baldwin County Schools let in Monday, about 450 students were all the more ready, thanks to the Secret Petals Motorcycle Club.

Georgia - The Secret Petals’ annual Summer Splash celebrated another successful July afternoon with club members passing out bags of school supplies to area kids for the fourth straight year.

Secret Petals MC Secretary Nakeycha “Crispy Cream” Hooks told The Union-Recorder that the Summer Splash back-to-school event was a big success.

“There was an awesome turnout,” she said. “We gave out about 450 bags full of school supplies.”

Hooks said that over the years since the club’s first Summer Splash, the Secret Petals have been adding to the event little by little. This year’s event included Nintendo Wii games on a big screen provided by Aarons Rental Center, two bounce houses, four cartoon characters, music provided by Power 107, food and an appearance by the Milledgeville Fire Department who brought one of their fire trucks to spray down the kids in attendance.

“We’d really like to thank our sponsors who provided their monetary donations, time and donated school supplies,” Hooks said.

The Secret Petals raised about $1,800 to fund the school supply giveaway. And this year, several area barbershops and beauty salons were on hand giving out gift certificates to go toward that new back-to-school hairstyle.

“We continue to reach out for support so we can continue to make the event bigger and better,” Hooks said.

Hooks said the Secret Petals’ next event will be raising funds for their annual Christmas family adoption. Each year, the club selects two area families to help out during the holidays.

If you would like to donate to the Secret Petals for either their Christmas adoption or next year’s Summer Splash, write to them at P.O. Box 663 Hardwick, GA 31034.
