From The Director:
Hello Chapter M
Our February Social at Oak Street Café in DePere was well attended. Good conversation and lots of fun was had by all. The lucky winners of the day were: Marge Hempe, Ila Hallett and Carl Vandera. Congratulations to you all.
There was also a sad note at our gathering. One of our Chapter M members, Janice Thompson from the Shawano area passed away on February 6, 2019. We saw Janice and her husband Rick at Van Abel’s only a few days before her passing.
Spring is coming and we all hope it will be here soon. Mother Nature on the other hand seems to have different plans for us here in Wisconsin, but we are ready for anything this time of year.
Not to much on the calendar for March, we have our Social on March 9 at Chefo’s Pancake House 760 W Kimberly Ave, Kimberly, WI. We meet at 9AM for breakfast and then have a short discussion about the activities coming up.
Then in the afternoon, the same day as our Social, we received an invite to join Chapter C for a pool party at the home of Jerry and Marge Hempe.
This is a different event than the meeting for the Yellowstone Trip.
Jerry sent out the following invitation:
GWRRA POOL PARTY
Ashbury Island Resort
It may be winter, it may be cold,
We will try to put the snow on hold.
The pool is warm, the Resort is Hot,
Be sure to come and get your best spot.
Sit by the pool with a drink in hand,
Pretending your toes are in the sand.
Bring your swim suit, we have plenty of towels,
You must wear a suit or we will call foul.
The swimming time will start at 3,
The water is warm, trust me.
After we swim, we will fill our glass,
go upstairs for some food to pass.
At 5pm we will have Sloppy Joe’s,
And different kinds of who knows.
Ashbury Island Resort is the place to be,
Come swim in our pool, but please don’t pee.
So make your reservations to the Ashbury Island Resort,
We would appreciate a full report.

Swim from 3pm - 5pm dinner to follow at 5pm

Be sure to check out our website gwrram.org and our Facebook page: gwrra-wi-chapter m for any new information that comes along after we have sent out our monthly newsletter.
The Chapter M Calendar is jammed packed with fun rides, some for a couple of hours, others for a weekend, a trip to Yellowstone and lots of events right in our own beautiful state of Wisconsin. If you’re looking for adventure, friends and fun make a plan and join in on some of these rides.
Just a reminder for those going on the Yellowstone trip. We would like to invite everyone to a get together on Saturday, March 2 at 3PM to meet the riders you haven’t met yet, and go over some of the details of the trip.
Jerry has volunteered his house at 1029 Ashbury CT Fond du Lac as a gathering place.
We will talk about the trip first, then anyone who would like to jump in the pool can do so…yes it is an indoor pool.
A meal will follow, we will have Sloppy Joes (BBQ beef) and we are asking you to bring a dish to pass and your beverage of choice.
E-mail Jerry Hempe: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 920-979-5967 if you have any questions.
