Happy New Years to All!
We ended 2023 with our last two events - We had a great turnout for our annual Christmas party at A&S. We had 80 party goers filling all chairs and enjoying a buffet of yummy food, and our very own Elf raffling coveted prizes. Next year we may need to add another table from 10 to 11. The Toy Run for the “Sacramento Children’s Receiving Home” (CRH) was greatly enjoyed by the children and staff. We had 13 members who, BBQ hamburgers, hotdogs with fixings and visited with the children. This year we added a CRH donation link on the website, received donations of $440. The CRH was very appreciative of the generosity of toys, gift cards and money donated by you all. Fred Jewell, as always did a great job in organizing this event.
It’s a new year -2024- We have a lot of rides planned this year such as the monthly rides, Wednesday dinner rides, scheduled riding events planned by members, ladies’ luncheon, Fred’s riding contest, and the MOA rally in Redmond, OR. To participate in all these rides check out the website’s event calendar for more info. You can also plan a ride and don’t be surprised if other members join you as you could end up in Mexico, Europe, or even Alaska!
