Hello Region 20 members,

Let’s get started with a recap from January’s meeting.  Genesee and Shiawassee was combined due to the seminar.  There was 53 members present and I guest- David Katkowsky.  On to the monthly news.

Mike and his Awareness team have done a fantastic job teaching young adults to “Look Twice”, in hopes of preventing motorcycle accidents.  The team increased the individuals taught by 40% over 2007.  In 2008, they instructed over 1400 people. That is awesome.  Make sure you congratulate the Awareness Team on their success. 

Member of the month for Genesee was John Langworthy He is a newer Region 20 member.  John was “Santa” at the region’s Christmas party. We appreciate his and Mrs. Clause (Ellen Langworthy) efforts.  For Shiawassee their Member of the Month was Stephen Kuch.  Stephen has stepped up to assist with webmaster duties.  He is doing a great job.  .  Thank you both for giving a shit.

 Our first Bikin for Burns committee meeting is scheduled for Feb 12th 7pm at the Side Car, attached to Scooter’s Bar and Grill.  If you would like to be a committee member, please plan to attend if possible.

This newsletter is “slightly shorter” than my normal notes, but guess what time it is……tomorrow we leave for the State Seminar.  I’m sure we’ll have lot’s of memories.  Lot’s of good stuff to talk about.

As always, if you haven’t attended a meeting lately, please do..we host two meetings a month; one in Genesee the 1st Tuesday of the month at Kimberly’s Pub and one the Sunday following the 1st Tuesday of the month in Shiawassee at the Hickory Lounge.  If you can’t do to personal obligations, we understand..we know you are here in spirit….

See you next month,

Georgia
