Dear RNation, Riley Raccoon and I wanted to thank everyone who took part in our series of Community Drives this summer. When we came up with the idea back in May we could not have imagined how much fun it was going to be and how many fans of all ages we were going to meet. From jammin’ in the streets of Rockland, to a mini-air band concert in Greenboro, to crushin’ the tunes with #RNation & 67’s supporters in Stittsville and many points in between… WE HAD A BLAST!!!
So many of our peeps helped to make this possible but literally, the Community Drive couldn’t have happened without our friends at Myers Automotive Group. Myers, along with their various partner locations, provided us with souped up pick-up trucks to wheel around town in style while allowing us to safely social distance. Myers Kanata Nissan, Myers Orleans GM, Myers Orleans Nissan, Myers Manotick
Here’s just sampling of the good times we had:
