Today is the last day of our auction of SOA art created by Mark Mullen. This young man has attracted a lot of attention with his art and you my fair community have taught this young man a valuable lesson.

The lesson that Mark has learned is that he can make a living from his art. He has something valuable to offer the world.  Do you know how many parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders need to know that there is hope?

Autistic people communicate differently, relate to the world and their surroundings differently than the rest of us but it does not mean that they can't be valuable members of society. This young man's story is a testament to that!

So with Autism Awareness month coming to a close - I challenge you to find out more about Autism and challenge your own ideas on mental health issues.

We will meet my goal of $4,000 for this auction - we are at $2790 with the Opie and Young Jax auctions left to be completed today at noon Alberta time.

We already have $1100 in bids today - so community - pat yourself on the back - we did it - you did it and I am so thankful!

I am off to do some training with some members of the Rider Friendly Business Association and then to my nephews wedding - I wish you all a wonderful weekend.

Ali will be doing the news feeds in a bit so make sure you visit to find out what might affect your day or life as a rider.
Until Monday...
