Ride For Roger:
Dick Breton reminded the club the second annual Roger’s Ride for a Cure will take place on Sunday, August 29, 2010. The purpose of Roger's Ride, which is held in memory of Roger Ballantyne, is to raise funds towards a cure for kidney cancer. The Kidney Cancer Association works together with patients, family members, physicians, researchers and many other health professionals.

Roger’s Ride for a Cure will take place on Sunday, August 29, 2010. It will be a motorcycle ride starting and ending at Irwin Motors Used Car Center on Union Avenue in Laconia, NH. Registration will run from 9:00 a.m. until 9:45 a.m. and will include coffee & muffins. The scenic, 100 mile ride will depart at 10 a.m. sharp and will end with a barbeque and 50/50 raffle. (The ride will take place rain or shine. A shorter route will happen if the weather does not cooperate.) Donation is $25.00 per motorcycle which will be divided between LRGHealthcare and the Kidney Cancer Association. For more details, pictures from last years event, or to make a pledge, "click" here.


We've Got Mail:

Steve Loughlin read thank you letters from scholarship recipients Brittany Perron and Nicole Levasseur (So far, he has received 4 thank you’s out of the 5 recipients) Steve noted, these two letters were unique. One letter was printed so clearly it looked like it was a professional card. The other letter was the longest thank you he recalls receiving from a scholarship recipient. You can view each letter by "clicking" on to the thumbnail letters below.
