!!! UPDATE !!!
2020 TOUR CANCELLED
It was with a great deal of regret that the Hammond Kiwanis Club had to postpone the 2020 Tour de Tangipahoa bicycle ride originally scheduled for September 19, 2020. At the time, the club had decided to make an attempt to hold the Tour on March 20, 2021. Unfortunately, because of continuing circumstances due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will not be able to offer the Tour on that date.
A number of factors contributed to the decision made by our board of directors in cancelling the proposed March event. Besides the need for continued precautions necessary to stop the spread of the virus, Southeastern Louisiana University is not allowing any outside activities, such as our bicycle ride, to be held on campus. Thus we would be deprived of the excellent facilities available at the university.
After considerable discussion our board of directors decided that it was in the best interest of our members, and most especially our riders, that we wait until the fall before resuming our very popular Tour de Tangipahoa.
We thank you for your interest in riding in our tour and we hope to see you September 18, 2021.
Since 1940 the Hammond Kiwanis Club has served as a force for good in the Hammond area. During the past year alone, the Hammond Kiwanis Club: fed needy families through our holiday food drive; supported public education by sponsoring Terrific Kids and BUGS programs and Perfect Attendance programs; supported Girls State and Boys State; offered activities for the AKTION Club of Hammond; sponsored Key Clubs that encourage leadership and responsibility among teens; provided backpacks filled with food items to young pupils; made needed improvements at the local senior citizen center; sponsored the TARC Christmas party; provided funding for the Boy Scouts and youth athletic teams; participated in the Louisiana State Summer Special Olympics; and said “yes” when called upon from time to time to assist and support various programs that enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve.
Your participation in the Tour de’ Tangipahoa will help assure that the good works of this dedicated and hard-working club will continue.
Thanks to TANGIPAHOA PARISH CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU and ALBERTSON’S for their continued support of the Tour de’ Tangipahoa
