September Newsletter Notes

Here we are going into Fall already, where did the year go? School has started and parents are rejoicing. It is time for all of us to be especially careful when traveling around schools. Watch out for the little ones, they don’t always remember to be careful.

As I write this, the Legacy Ride is closing in on Reno,Nv and the National Convention. Several of our members are preparing to depart for the rally in Cripple Creek. Ride safe everyone.

Aug 26 is the Poker Run Fundraiser for the Reno County Veterans Memorial. Details are on a flyer on the bulletin board at the Post.

September brings us the State Fair. The State Fair Motorcycle Ride will be Sunday Sept 10. More details will follow by E-mail. We will need members to help park bikes that day. Please contact me to volunteer, all shifts have openings.

September also brings us the State ALR Rally, Sept 22-24. There are some resolutions that will be voted on at the meeting on Sat. Copies of the resolutions were sent to all members by E-mail. Please read them over and be ready to voice an opinion at our Sept meeting, or contact myself or Kristy.

Until next month: Ride Safe. Say a special prayer for members dealing with health problems.

 

August Newsletter Notes 

 

July is a somewhat slow month for the Riders. We participated in the July 4 Parades in Hutchinson and Sterling. Plans for the Nickerson Klear Nearly Parade are in the works. Watch your E-mails.

Speaking of E-mails, if your E-mail address has changed please be sure to notify one of the Officers so that your new address can be updated in our files.

Please continue to keep track of all of your volunteer hours. I will be asking for them in Nov or Dec so they can be turned in to State and National.

July Newsletter Notes

 

This has been a very busy month for the Riders. Thanks to all who turned out to lend a hand at all of the events. Memorial Day flag placements went very smoothly.  Several of our Riders participated in the Kansas Legacy Run and all had a great time. Perhaps more of us should consider riding in this very worthwhile run. We are deeply honored to be able to be a part of the repatriation ceremony for WW II pilot John Dean Armstrong. Being a part of these ceremonies is a very emotional experience.

Mak, Bruce, and Bud made the front page of the Hutch News this morning with their flag folding presentation at Mennonite Manor. Phil assisted Mak and Bruce with the flag folding at Brookdale. They and others have done these flag folding presentations at Rest Homes and Schools. These presentations have always been very well received. A special thanks to all who participate in these presentations. Our members continuously represent us well to the community.

Thank The Lord for the safe return of our members who were on vacations. The world out there is not always a safe place for those of us who travel on two (3) wheels.

The Third Annual Wounded Vet Run is very special for us this year. This year’s Honoree is our own Post Commander and Rider member Jeremy Ehart. The ride takes place June 24 starting at our Post.

Ride safe and “Keep the Shiny Side Up”.
