Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels to all of our SFWDA family!


Thanksgiving Delights

On Thanksgiving Day we're thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.

For sun to light and warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.

We're grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.

The list of all we're grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!

Fall Meet & Ride at Choccolocco Mountain OHV Park


Beautiful weather, great people, great turnout! We graciously thank the whole Warner Robbins Jeep Club for all their effort hosting this successful event. We filled a trailer full of toys for the tots and helped support a local OHV park, all while having a GREAT time! Be sure to join us at the next Meet and Ride.

From Oscar Indreland ; President of Warner Robbins Jeep Club :
"On behalf of the Warner Robins Jeep Club it truly was our pleasure to be apart of this. Seems everyone had a great time. Few broken parts here and there but that's part of the game. We ended up with nearly 100 vehicles and almost double that in people. The WRJC had a blast and we hope everyone else did too."
