The Canadian Legion of Riders made a donation in January to the Battlefords Light Brigade No. 45 Christian Motorcycle Association’s “Run To the Sun” fundraiser.
Several LOR members belong to the CMA and give much appreciated support.
A donation was also made to the Royal Canadian Legion No. 39 and the Pioneer Lodge in Lloydminster. Support received from members and sponsors and the Lloydminster community as a whole has been generous and appreciated.
A sold-out crowd of 150 people turned out to the Feb. 11 fish fry, the club’s most successful to date in attendance and in terms of profit. There were 50/50 cash draws and door prizes given away.
In March, a gold airplane level sponsorship was purchased from the Battlefords Air Cadets going towards a new floor for the Cadet Hall.
March 19, an annual general meeting was held. Forty people attended, most of whom were members. Proposed constitution changes were adopted.
The new executive is: Buff McGovern, president; Gordon Hildebrand, first vice-president; Lyle McIvor, second vice-president; Kevin Jones, secretary; and Vicki Smith, treasurer. Directors are Shellee Higgs, Fred Laborde, Bill Bishop and Sonya Hilsendager.
Members have been actively promoting the club’s raffle bike, travelling to the Moose Jaw swap meet and the Lloydminster Sports and Leisure Show. Members are encouraged to volunteer to take some shifts or to consider taking a book of 20 tickets to sell. Contact Shellee Higgs or Kevin Jones for more information or to make arrangements.
Current membership is 60. Memberships can be renewed by contacting Cheri Lewis, membership chair, or through the website.
Executive meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month.
