Chapter Director

Now that 2015 is behind us, we can look forward to 2016 with excitement. Cabin Fever will be in February 
at Divots in Norfolk. What fun and enjoyment we'll all have!! Looking for more riding time and less working 
this next summer, especially since I'll be 62 in June. Tanner's eye hasn't changed and is scheduled for surgery on 
Feb. 2nd. They will remove the cataract and lens, and put a new lens in to see how much it will improve vision. 
Cornea transplant is still a possibility in the not to distant future. Weather has been up and down this winter, so makes 
everything interesting. Thank you to all Chapter NE-C Members for donating food to the food pantries - we gave 
$140 worth of food to Albion and $140 to Newman Grove.  We need to nominate individual of the year and couple 
of the year for 2016, so be thinking of a few candidates.  Thank you to Bittners for being our 2015 COY and 
Al Kuta for Individual of the Year.   Our January meeting will be the 17th, at Maximus in Columbus, eating at 12:00 p.m. 
with Don and Phyllis Blessen hosting it.    News from Region E, Bruce Beam is stepping down as Assistant Director.  
Not much news to write about, so until next time, keep in mind that winter will be over in a little while and spring is on the way.

Safety   
I will be talking about first aid kits that we carry in our bikes at the get-together, I would like to have
everyone bring there first aid kits to the get-together so we can compare different kits.
 
Hope everyone had a VERY MERRY CHISTMAS and everyone has a happy, healthy,and safe New Year.
 
        Stay warm and dry.
