The Spirit Ride, a ceremonial procession with a casket as its centerpiece, designed to highlight the importance of the Move Over law, makes a stop at Bunnell City Hall at 9 a.m., where several local officials will speak. The ceremonial Spirit casket has been relayed in over 140 cities from tow truck to tow truck, and before year’s end will have passed hands in 300 cities with truck processions totaling over 10,000 trucks from towing, fire, police and EMS. The focal point of the Ceremony is the Spirit casket: custom built to eight feet in length and painted by wrecker artist, Cecil Burrowes. The artwork features scenes of first responders working on the roadways, depicting the risks they face. One scene shows a towman carrying the world on his back as cars whiz by. Another scene portrays a police officer at an accident scene with a truck bearing down at his back. The color scheme of the casket represents patriotism and tragedy. On one end are red and white stripes and faded stars. On the other end are red, white, and blue bars: red symbolizing the blood sacrificed, white – the spirit of the fallen, and blue – the loss to family. The ceremony includes a blessing recited by all present and the singing of “Bless the Spirit Riders,” an original song composed as an anthem for the Spirit Ride. Processions of up to 100 trucks follow the casket which carries the message, Slow Down, Move Over. There is a Move Over law in each state of the Union, designed to protect first responders and other roadside workers, but according to the National Safety Commission, 71% of Americans are not aware of this law. See the website here.

The Online auction to benefit the G.W. Carver Center in Bunnell is now open. Art Work, Local Experiences, Restaurant Gift Cards, Baskets, FCYC Summer Camp Registration & Trip Specials, Window Cleaning, Kayaking Tour, Furniture, World Wide Time Share, Camping Rentals, and the list goes on and on. The purpose of the auction is to raise money to go back into the development of the Carver Center. The Flagler County School Board and Flagler County Government have both owned and managed the facility over the years. Due to budgetary constraints it appeared it would be necessary to close the facility in 2010. A coalition was born to save the Gym and restore it as a community center. Our foundation was created to serve this facility with grant funding and equipment/supply needs. In order to participate in this auction you must register for a bidder account here. On the last day of the auction if a bidder submits a bid in the last 3 minutes before auction closes that item will extend for another 3 minutes and that process will repeat for up to a half hour the official close. Go bid here. If you have any questions please contact us via email at [email protected]
