I would like to thank all of the members of IV HOG that took time out of their busy weekend schedules to join in on some very meaningful events. Saturday we went out in full force to Fort Indiantown Gap Memorial Cemetery for an event honoring veterans. Although I did not do a full count, I would guess that we were about 50 bikes strong that day !!! At the Cabela's staging location, the Prez of another club asked me how I got so many members out that day. Continue reading

The event is co-sponsored by the Federal Concerned Organizations and Inter Clubs of Bucks and Montgomery County.

As you will recall, several weeks ago we were called upon to join a ride for a little girl, Teresa, that loves bikes and had an inoperable brain tumor. The Knights put out the call to arms, as it were, for anyone that could join in to please do so for a ride to the house for Teresa. I am sorry to report that Teresa passed away on April 24th.
Her viewing will be held from 9 AM until 11 AM on Saturday, May 5th, at Calvary Church, 820 Route 113, Souderton.
The family has asked that you wear pink or bright happy colors. Internment, due to location size, is limited to family only. Continue reading

As I was riding home this afternoon I couldn't help but think about our wonderful chapter. A quick posting for a special event and our turnout was second to none. I have said it before and you will no doubt hear me say it many times, I AM PROUD TO REPRESENT THIS CLUB !!! A short ride to Bedminster as a fundraiser for a terminally ill 7 year old girl, and we had over 20 of our bikes out there in the cold. Every other club that was there came up to me and expressed their gratitude for the number of people we had attend. The overall turnout was great, but when you look at the percentage of the attendees, we were again the highest of all !!! The girl's father was crying when he spoke with me and he could not thank me enough for our organization to be there for our support. Continue reading
