March 2023 Minutes


This month’s meeting was held Saturday, March 25, 2023, at the Parkette Family Restaurant,  located at 2022 E Pike St, Clarksburg, WV. First Officer John Hawkins led the meeting. There were fifteen people in attendance.

Old Business

The Ride schedule for May was read, and one ride was changed; see below under new business. The Pittsburgh strip day outing was added to our rides for April 29th.

New Business

A gift was offered of either a pig roaster or a mountain bike to be given as chapter 485’s WV State Rally donation. It was discussed, and those in attendance accepted the pig roaster.

The May 13th Deep Creek ride has been changed to a benefit ride for “Riding For The Big Apple,” as suggested by a member. For more information on this event, please visit their Facebook events page: https://www.facebook.com/events/707635554329882/?ref=newsfeed

The group presented the OHagans with a gift of love to help with travel expenses while they care for their daughter with terminal cancer.
