An anniversary without a party...

This month the Aruban Donkey Sanctuary celebrates its fifteenth anniversary. In 1997 a few volunteers started catching and sheltering roaming donkeys. At first there were just 10 donkeys; by now there are 120 animals, who find a home at the sanctuary. Roaming donkeys are a hazard for the busy roads with heavy traffic and vice versa. The donkeys belong to the Aruban landscape, however, and they have become a tourist attraction: more than 25,000 visitors cross the gates of the sanctuary every year. There are still some 70 roaming donkeys left - still causing accidents.

Harley-Davidson Celebrates Women Riders in Latin America and the Caribbean During International Female Ride Day

Harley Logo
MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012)- Harley-Davidson honors women riders across the globe this May by inviting them to join Women Riders Month events. During the month of May, hundreds of women riders from Latin America to the Caribbean will join thousands of other women in countries around the world to showcase their passion for the sport of motorcycling during the 6th Annual International Female Ride Day. What began in 2007 with a simple concept of "connecting women with motorcycling" has grown into a worldwide event, founded by MOTORESS in Toronto, Canada, inviting women riders around the world to "just ride," an idea that is passionately supported by industry leader Harley-Davidson.

Harley Ride
In celebration of this initiative, Aruba will be hosting their 3rd Annual Ladies of Harley Ride from May 4th to May 6th, consisting of a Garage Party at the dealership on May 4th, 2012 from 7 pm to 9 pm, night ride on May 5th to Moomba Beach with live music by Dushi Band and daytime ride May 6th with DJ entertainment, food, drinks and prizes to announce the new Ladies of Harley Queen of 2012. Last year's event was very successful, inspiring many women to join the motorcycle world. This year, it promises to be even more successful as Karen Davidson, creative director for Harley-Davidson General Merchandise and Great-Granddaughter of Co-Founder William Davidson, will be in attendance.
