Brothers and Sisters,
Well, the weather has changed but never changes enough to ride if we get a dry and clear day.
I hope you were all able to get out and see the changing of the leaves. I did but the colors of the leave were not a bright as in the past. They say we had to much rain.
The past month was a month filled with nice days and raining days but the MRC did an OPEN Club Ride to the Traveling Viet Nam Wall in Murrysville, PA. It was cold, but we really didn’t feel the cold and got to have a great ride and a great solidarity day for those who attended.
As the year is coming to an end, we find the month of November as a month where you can change the way our country is going by getting out Tuesday, Nov. 6th and VOTE. As we walked the Traveling Wall to honor those who gave the Ultimate Sacrifice for us to have the freedom to vote, we must vote to honor them and to make our country strong, and to make our country a better place for future brothers and sisters and their families and all American’s.
Also, Sunday, Nov. 11 is actually Veterans Day but Monday Nov. 12th is the actual day that those working will observe Veteran’s Day. So, make sure to “Thank A Vet”!!
Thanksgiving Day is Nov. 22nd so get your workouts in and drop a few pounds so you can eat until you cannot move Thanksgiving Day.
Hunters, be safe and aware of your surroundings and have a great and successful hunt.
Remember to mark your calendars for Saturday December 8th for our closing of the year MRC meeting at the Steak n Lube in Cranberry at noon. Please bring any rides we didn’t do that you would like to do or stories of rides you did this year to share with the club. We have several rides to discuss for 2019 that the club is looking into. So, come prepared to discuss rides and any other interests you might have for the club to do in 2019. We are only as strong as our membership.
Please invite any retired or active union member to the meeting. They are all welcome to attend and learn about your MRC.
Last but not least, don’t be surprised if we get a nice day and you get a text letting you know we are doing a lunch ride somewhere. It will not be a long ride just a short ride to lunch. You can drive your car to lunch if you want.
So, Vote, Thank a Veteran, and Happy Thanksgiving!!
