Celebration of life - February 18, 2017
A grand celebration was held in Wekiva, FL for a beloved and inspirational Golden Life member of Motor Maids. Motor Maids from all across North America attended, with many participating in a memorial ride. Betty achieved a 70 year membership award at convention in Santa Fe, NM in 2016 and has been on motorcycles since she was an infant. Her mom, Dot (co-founder of Motor Maids), swaddled her with a blanket and hot water bottle on occasion as she rode with Dot in her sidecar. That and other stories were highlights when talking with Betty and are cherished memories.
Again this year, Atlantic Canada Motor Maids had a booth at the motorcycle show in Moncton, February 10-12, and at the show in Halifax, March 3-5. Thanks to Cheryl for organizing the show and shifts in Moncton, and Chris and Lynne for that job in Halifax . More than one hundred women filled out ballots trying to win our fabulous gift baskets, and asking for additional information about Motor Maids. Saturday was an extremely busy day in Halifax with non-stop streams of motorcycle enthusiasts passing our booth with many stopping to chat and look at the display. The winner of the gift basket in Moncton was Tammy V. who lives in New Horton NB and owns a Harley Sportster. The Halifax winner was Kim C.
