From The Directors

Mother Nature continues to play unseasonable games with us.  I understand some people in Wisconsin were trying to finish mowing their lawns before the next Snow Storm.  Cold weather does not get in the way of some of our members, but snow and ice are a big NO-NO.

 

April continued to be a big planning month.  With a lot of hard work by Lori Schneider, Tod Hellman, and other talented individuals, our new website will be live about the first of May. 

 

Our Annual Brat Fry will take place May 3rd and 4th.  We always donate a percentage of our profits to some charity or local community fund.  This year’s sponsored event is the City of Fond du Lac K-Nine Unit.  If you are out and about riding, stop by the Pick’n Save on Johnson Street or Pioneer Road.  The dogs will be making two appearances.  From 3 PM to 4 PM Saturday, they will be at the Pioneer Road location; and from 4 PM to 5 PM, they will be at the Johnson Street Store. 

 

Our annual maintenance Day at Jerry and Marge Hempe’s home was an opportunity to get help on motorcycle maintenance issues, including oil changes, tune up, troubleshooting, and installation on new accessories.  The comradery and friendship made this a great social and learning experience.  Besides over a dozen members from Chapter C, we had other visitors including Russ, Marsha, Mark, and Michelle from Chapter M.

 

Chapter C’s May Social (although it took place April 28) was the inaugural event of presenting our new Web Site, including aspects of navigation and explanations of its coordination with the district site.  As Chapter Directors, Linda and I are thrilled.  This new website streamlines our job in communicating to our members, district members, and the community at large.  It is also linked to our Facebook page.  This being the Digital Age, this site communicates very well our Chapter Mission and allows potential members to see what we are all about.

 

Ready or not mother nature, the two and three-wheel Goldwings are ready to take the road.  Friendship, new activities and just plain fun are on their way.

 

Ride Safe,

 

Leo and Linda Prentice, Directors Chapter C
