Shown below, David receives a most precious gift, crafted from 9 years of ride shirts. The tenth year shirt was presented in a glass frame. The shirts were provided by some of Daves closest friends. The quilt was made so very lovingly by Mrs. Donna Kennedy. This is truly the gift of a lifetime.
This presentation was made at the dinner banquet following "Nick's Tenth Anniversary Ride" at Alpine Grove on July 26th, 2014.

Captain Tyler Mclaughlin has generously donated another trip Valued at $3500!
This trip of a lifetime for two was won by a corporate company that has so very generously "re-donated" this prize back to the Nicholas Jennings Memorial Fund to be raffled off in a future fund raising event.
In these truly challenging financial times, I would like to extend many thanks and my appreciation to all who participated and made the 10th Annual Nicholas Jennings Memorial Ride on July 26th 2014 our most successful event to date. The proceeds will go to fund scholarships to high school seniors in Hollis,Brookline,Nashua,Merrimack and Hudson. We are working towards increasing our ability to fund scholarships at additional high schools. Our goal is to be able to add Milford high school in 2014. A special thank you to the many volunteers and sponsors because without you we would not be as successful and continually growing this event.
Sincerely, Dave Jennings July 27th, 2014
The Nicholas Jennings Memorial Fund was setup in honor of Nicholas Jennings, a member of the Hollis Brookline High School Class of 2007. Nick passed away in November of 2004, as a result of an automobile accident. Nick had a special charisma that enabled him to bring a smile to everyone's face while always having one on his own.
Nick lived each day to the fullest and believed the way to do that was simply to have fun. His love for athletics didn't end on the football or lacrosse fields, teams that he personally participated on. He was also very involved in all other athletic teams through his school spirit. His charisma showed through his artwork, improvisational and musical abilities.
This scholarship will not necessarily be awarded to a student with outstanding scholastic achievements, but to a student who is trying to further his/her education and gain personal growth through sports and other educational activities.
Since 2005, this memorial ride has achieved tremendous growth and with your continued support we want to be able to continue to extend the scholarships to surrounding towns. We would like to thank all of our family, friends and sponsors for making these scholarships available to future generations.
