What a surprise we had at our business meeting in October! New England Ride for Kids Task Force Leader David Odess attended our meeting and presented us with a 2012 plaque for being the #3 group fundraiser for the 2012 New England Ride. What the big surprise that he shared with us was that we were the top Red Knights fundraiser for the Ride for Kids in 2011 for all the rider around the country! He presented the chapter
with a certificate from the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. When I accepted the certificate I told David I was very proud of our members, and that we are always honored to participate in the ride.
Here is an excerpt from the PBTFUS "Helping Hands" newsletter from this summer, that lists us for their 2011 tally sheet. http://www.rk-mass2.org/Summer_2012_Helping_Hand.pdf
