Brothers and Sisters,
 
This is a busy month for the MRC. We have an Event on May 5th for the Three Rivers Battalion 310 Marines, for their Pasta Dinner. It starts at noon and goes to 6 PM. This is one of the Charity events the MRC has voted to donated to. The MRC is planning a ride to this event so if you would like to go along please let me know ASAP. Any IBEW 29 union member is welcome to join us. If the weather forecast is good for riding, we will be planning a ride to and after the fund raiser.
 
Murrel’s Inlet S. C. is having their Annual Bike Week the third week in May. Saturday, May 10th to   Sunday, May 19th. If anyone is going to Bike Week, I will be there, so maybe we can get together for a nice ride and lunch.
 
Sister and Brother Norma and Frank Chapin have a Charity Event in Clark, PA. May 19th. We are planning a ride to and from this event and hope you can join your MRC on this ride. This will probably be an all-day event, so plan on a full day of riding and having fun.
 
Also, this is the last year for the Rolling Thunder in Washington, D.C.  Rolling Thunder is a United States advocacy group that seeks to bring full accountability for prisoners of war and missing in action service members of all US wars. The groups first demonstration was in 1988. It was incorporated in 1995, and has more than 90 Chapters throughout the US, as well as overseas. Rolling Thunder is Friday, May 24th through Monday, May 27th. This is Memorial Day weekend. Your MRC is attending and if you are thinking of going you better get on the Rolling Thunder Web site to find the Host Hotel or a hotel in D.C. and get your reservations ASAP. If you want to ride along with us, let me know and I will tell you where we are meeting on Friday for the ride down to D.C. Good Luck.
 
There will be some lunch or dinner rides throughout the month and if you have a ride or restaurant that would be a nice place to have lunch or dinner let the MRC know. Nothing better than a nice ride and food!
 
We hope to see you at our events and Ride Safe and Ride Often!!
 
In Solidarity,
Jonesy
