We hope that by the time you are reading this we are enjoying some warmer weather. Its been a cold spring but that has not kept Eastern down. The spring fever run was a lot of fun, both Howdy Mills and Dan Walton braved the cold and rode their bikes. At the end of the run the winners of the grocery drawing were announced. Bill Green, Connie Carrington, and Gary Mileham were the lucky winners. They each received gift certificates for $250 at Schnucks in Urbana.
The 2018 Summer Boogie will be here before you know it and there is a lot of fun being planned. Right now we need everyone to help and get Ads for the Boogie Book. If you know of a business that would be interested in being in the Boogie Book please send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be selling Bike Raffle tickets for the State on May 11th - 13th at Gordyville. Volunteers are needed to work 2 hour shifts Friday evening through Sunday. Contact Deanna Zehr for shift times at 217/643-7374. Selling tickets helps the state as well as our chapter! Looking forward to seeing you there.
