Events make busy weekend|Our Opinion

Two events this weekend will give you a chance to get out and enjoy the community — and help two causes at the same time.
First up is the fourth annual Brewton Biker Bash, sponsored by Covenant Hospice. A bike show will be on tap from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Burnt Corn Creek Park, with entertainment from local artists, food vendors and prizes. A bike ride will also be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon that day.
Proceeds from the event benefit Covenant Hospice, a non-profit organization that depends largely on volunteers to help serve patients with life-limiting illness. Hospice also serves the patients’ families with bereavement aid and support.
Also Saturday, the Humane Society of Escambia County is hosting its first Wags and Wheels car show and mutt strut. So once you have your fill of motorcycles, you can take Fido or Spot over to T.R. Miller High School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to show off your dog and get a look at some beautiful cars. Pet lovers will be able to enjoy vendors and demonstrations at Wags and Wheels, and they can enter the mutt strut for $25. The event will also feature a microchipping clinic.
Proceeds benefit the humane society, which is hoping to raise funds for a new van that will help the organization transport animals to other, larger areas of the region for adoption.
So often we hear complaints that there just isn’t enough to do in Brewton. Well, that certainly won’t be true this weekend.
So take the time to dust off your hog and spruce up your dog, and then head out to both events this Saturday.
You’ll feel good about yourself and have fun in the process.
