 FROM THE DIRECTORS:

WOW. Is the summer flying bye. How can July be over and it’s August already?!?

We finally had some really great riding weather in July. Hopefully everyone got out and put some quality miles on the bike.

One of the most interesting things some of us did in July was the lunch at Miss Katey’s Diner and then the visit to the MSOE Grohman Tower Art Museum. What an amazing collection of original art depicting all forms of labor and engineering. The museum building and its contents were all donated by a Milwaukee businessman and philanthropist named Eckhart Grohmann, who is also an MSOE regent. This museum is truly a hidden gem in downtown Milwaukee.

Boy, August is going to be one BUSY month. As you can see from the information above we have something going on every week and almost every weekend, starting with the ride to La Crosse and ending with the social.

The annual Corn roast/Picnic is always one of the highlights of the summer. We really need chapter G to turn out this year to help us get back the Chapter Challenge trophy from chapter N. You can be sure they’ll be bringing a lot of people to defend it.

We’re really looking forward to seeing you at one or all of our events this month. We’ll be having a great time.
