BONK! 68
6PM (doors open 5:00!)
Unfortunately, last week yet another loved BONK! family member passed away.  The Racine legend many knew as the guy on the bike with the beard–Moses–passed away of a heart attack on April 23rd.  He will be very missed by the BONK! family and by the Racine community at large.  Please join us to celebrate his life at the memorial service to be held at St Luke’s Church next week (details here).
We love you, Moses.  You’ll be missed!


And don’t forget the special Poet Laureate event at Carthage College tomorrow, featuring Nick Ramsey (Racine Laureate), Jean Preston (Kenosha Laureate) and Max Garland (Wisconsin State Laureate).  See here for details.
