Brothers and Sisters,
As the weather starts its changing and Mother Nature beautifies the country sides with her beautiful colors with the trees it makes for a great ride. Many of you have been riding and enjoying her beauty.
Thanks to all our MRC Members, because of you, we were again able to donate to the 3 local agencies during these hard times. The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, Faith Restorations Food Bank in Monaca, and the Veteran’s Place on Washington Blvd. The food banks are finding that their agencies will see a possible 3 times increase this holiday season with this pandemic going on. Veteran’s Place has been open this entire year working with our veteran’s in need. Thank you the Members of the MRC!!!!
Our union has also been on the mission of donating to various charities during these hard times. I guess that’s how your MRC gets its interest in helping out our communities when we can. We grew up with the union way of supporting our neighboring communities.
Thanksgiving is not too far away and I hope all of our union Brothers and Sisters are able to get together with their families to enjoy the holiday.
Christmas to follow, if you haven’t noticed all the stores are decorated already. I have seen a lot of stores are offering great discounts for the up and coming holiday.
Then New Years Day. I haven’t heard of any New Year’s Day motorcycle rides. I have always tried to do the Three Rivers New Year’s Day ride with Will J. Hopefully this year we will be able to do that ride again. If you hear of any H-D Dealerships of any group doing the New Year’s Day ride, let me know so I can get that information out to the MRC and the union.
This past week was great and I did take the time to get out and ride through the country sides. If you have any thoughts of riding any time soon, let your MRC members know. I’m sure there are some of us still trying to get in some final 2020 rides.
I wish for you, your family and friends and all our union brothers and sisters to stay healthy and be safe and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
