stronger every day. I hope they continue with this
Bob Hickly spent his Christmas holiday in the
hospital. He was taken to Newton hospital on Wednesday night,
December 23rd. He was admitted and released on Christmas Day. No
Covid-19 or flu but it was some type of infection in blood
stream. Went to doctor today, December 30th. and they still can
not say where or how the infection got in blood stream. That is
BOB, for you, always coming up with something that no one can pinpoint. He is feeling better and better every day.
McCroskey is recovering from surgery on her hand on December
18th. Bob is becoming quite the nurse mate these days. Way
to go Bob!
Please keep Beverly Ensley and her family in your
thoughts and prayers. Beverly lost her mother on December 30th,
she was 92 and passed away in her sleep, which is what she always

The Motorist Awareness Program reaches out
to the non-cycling public and tells them about motorcyclists with a
goal of reducing motorcycle accidents.
Unfortunately, this program was put on hold in 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
am hoping that with the new Covid-10 vaccinations the social distancing
restrictions will be reduced in 2021 and Chapter A can start scheduling
MAP Activities again.
Happy New Year everyone!
those of you who were unable to attend our Christmas Party..we missed
you! A fun raffle was held to benefit the Veterans Support Group.
At $1 per guess, members could guess the amount of Christmas
candy in a tall jar, with unlimited guesses. The member guessing the
correct or closest number would receive the jar and contents, plus a
handcrafted bowl donated by Phil Piotrowski.
Total amount raised was $51, and the lucky winner was Karla Greer!
Thanks to all who played! See you at our next meeting, and please don't forget to bring your canned and packaged goods for VSG.

Our annual biker's stew at the Maynard's was a
fantastic showing. Bob & Bonnie never fail us with their pot
of biker’s stew. But even better than the food, which is hard to beat,
was the fellowship of actually seeing everybody and catching up with
our GWRRA extended family.
Hope you make plans to join us soon.
