Members of the Week: Lewis and Donna Baber

“I would like to nominate Lewis and Donna Baber of Florida to be accepted as ACTHA Members of the Week.  Lewis and Donna ride together as a couple, when you meet them at a ride it is like meeting family.  They are always encouraging, love to meet new people, help by offering advise and mentoring new riders, and willing to take the lead.  Any ride where the Baber’s are present is affected by their warm hospitality while at camp or on the trail.  They are welcoming, social, kind and always supportive.

Lewis is notorious for taking new members under his wing and helping them attain great successes.  He adds to the fun by bringing healthy, friendly competition to those he mentors once they have blossomed into worthy rivals on the course.  His spirit of good sportsmanship adds positively to the ride atmosphere, it is enjoyed and respected by those competing with him.  He keeps you on your toes and encourages you to best yourself.  It is an honor to ride with both Lewis and Donna. 

Tragically, Donna was recently in an accident where she was hit by a car while she was walking through a cross walk.  She suffered numerous bones being broken and was hospitalized for several weeks.  She is now working toward finally being able to ride again this September.  Her fellow riders are looking forward to seeing her on the trail again this fall and all have dearly missed her presence during her recovery.”

A second recommendation for Donna and Lewis states, “I think Donna and Lewis should be members of the week because they are two of the sweetest, kindest people that I know.  Lewis and Donna are such an inspiration to others, always striving to do better at each obstacle, always lending a much needed smile.  Great sportsmanship sure sums up Lewis and Donna!”

Congratulations to the Babers for being this week’s Members of the Week! Many thanks to Molly’s Custom Silver for sponsoring this weekly event. Molly’s Custom Silver is ACTHA’s official silversmith!
