JSLA looks to start new tradition with ‘Witches Ride’

The Junior Service League of Andalusia has a goal to give back to the community through its first annual Witches Ride event.

“We are a local women’s organization dedicated to bettering ourselves and our community through service,” President Ashley Morgan said. “We were first organized in 1975 and began our mission of service in 1976.”

Morgan added the organization’s mission is the betterment of the community.

“Junior Service League provides financial and community support to people in our area. We have reached out to help with our local National Night Out, Cookies for Characters, Community Christmas, and many other community events over the years,” she said.

This year, JSLA will be holding its first Witches Ride event on Saturday, Oct. 23. Registration will begin at 4 p.m. in the First Baptist Church of Andalusia parking lot on East Three Notch Street. The ride is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Those who would like to pre-register should send an e-mail to juniorserviceleagueandalusia@gmail.com.

The cost is $10 for walkers, $20 for bicycles, and $30 for side-by-sides/golf carts with two riders. Each additional rider is $5, and the cost will be $50 for those who wish to add a trailer.

“Costumes are highly encouraged. Four-wheelers will not be allowed. Our route will be from the First Baptist Church to the intersection of River Falls and Church Streets,” Morgan said.

Prizes will be awarded for each category. Businesses interested in making a donation towards either the parade or prizes are encouraged to contact Morgan.

She said her mother informed her about the Witches Ride concept after hearing about one in Daphne and another in Fairhope.

“It’s a huge event in those areas, and our club has been hit hard by COVID. We haven’t been able to have a fundraiser, and it seemed like the right idea to try this one. We hope this can become a tremendous event here as the years go by. We’d love to add to it and make it one of Andalusia’s signature events,” she said.

“We hope to create a fun family event during October that will also help us raise funds to contribute back into the community. We are looking forward to bringing this event to Andalusia and hope everyone will come and participate with us,” Morgan said.
