105th Anniversary Trip to Milwaukee August 28th –30th:

Each Chapter is allowed to have one rider + passenger ride in the parade to carry the Chapter flag. If you are interested, e-mail Steve Purkiss. The chapter will draw one winner and an alternate at a future chapter meeting.

Steve Purkiss is requesting that anyone going to Milwaukee that wants others to ride with, e-mail him your travel plans, he will post them on the website. Hopefully we can get several groups together to ride out there and back.
