BOB shirt
The 2017 Blessing of the Bikes was the 25th consecutive year this event had been held.  Unfortunately, it was a VERY soggy, rainy day, and many regular attenders were unable to come.  There was a special 25th anniversary T-shirt designed, and those are on sale online and at the Welcome Center for the discounted price of $7.50 each.  If you didn't get a shirt last year, please help Bald Knob Cross recoup the cost of last year's shirts, and don't miss having your 25th anniversary shirt to enjoy!   Click here to order.
