Hi, fellow Army members.
Well, the day has come, it’s finally here, my very first Vespa Blog!!
To kick-off the blog, I thought I’d share my story of how I received my pink Vespa.
Welcomed with balloons and accolades, the incredibly adorable, pink limited addition Vespa was unveiled while surrounded by an enthusiastic crowd of supporters in pink Army of Women T shirts. Working with Go AZ Motorcycles, I was able to host an event at their dealership where I could sign women up for the Army of Women while receiving my long awaited pink Vespa. Having recently taken on the role of Arizona Troop Organizer, I rallied our Arizona Army Soldiers together to come out and get others to support the cause. Go AZ Motorcycles threw us a party cooking up chicken and burgers and ran the Army of Women’s Public Service Announcements over their TV system as new members registered in the cyber cafe.
Nick Quan, Piaggio representative, presented the Vespa and Ashley Casano, a past Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation staff member, told us how she was inspired to become a doctor from working with Dr. Love and the Foundation. She is now in med school right here in the Valley of the Sun and looking forward to working with the Arizona team.
The Arizona Army of Women volunteers are so excited to have this Vespa in our arsenal. It certainly is eye catching and with a big Army of Women decal it will be one of our best tools.
Fortunately, our sunny Arizona weather is conducive to immediately gliding down the road. In much of the country the weather would require a pink snowmobile. (You snow bound Army members in the hard hit cold regions can laugh at me when I am sweating in the 115 degree summer heat.)
Santa/my family presented me with a vintage style black leather motorcycle helmet for protection. So I am ready to hit the road! Our Arizona foot soldiers are excited and our Army is on the move!
Thanks to the whole Go Az Motorcycle crew for all their help and support and of course to Piaggio for the generous donation of the scooter to Army of Women. And to the Phoenix Metro Scooter Club for publicizing the event on their site and accepting me as their newest member.
