ELKS LODGE

More Info
Less Info
This will be our second meeting of the winter season. The Elks is still in recovery mode from the damage sustained by Ian. However, they want us back and will be providing us a room, some meals and beverages. The Elks has been a great supporter of our club and have never charged us for the use of their facility. Food options will be somewhat limited to burgers, wings, and pizza (including vegetarian). We will have a guest speaker, Jim Dodson. Jim had done a video interview with Jay Ustruck about 11 months past the horrific accident he and our other members were involved with on Center Road, October of 2018. I have seen the video and it is a compelling story of how the accident occurred, the physical and emotional injuries Jay experienced and how he was able to regain his passion for cycling. It is a powerful story that members should see. Jim will then answer questions about the video, claims process, insurance, etc
