Kiwanis International Motorcycle Club
 
My name is Gord Harris and I am President Elect of the Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada, Kiwanis Club. 
 
I wish to inform the members of the International Family of Kiwanians that the motorcycle riding members in our club (6 of us) have formed the “Kiwanis International Motorcycle Club”, our Owen Sound club being Chapter 1. 
 
For those of you that ride motorcycles you know the fun and fellowship that is quite special in the motorcycle fraternity. With that in mind we have started this club to enhance our motorcycle experience locally and to share it with like minded riders internationally. 
 
Our simple goal is to come into contact with other Kiwanis members who ride and are interested in meeting & sharing their resources related to motorcycling. If you are members of other clubs you will know what I mean. If you aren’t then it’s time you were. 
 
Our goal would be to have a registry of International Chapters and their members so that, if in your area, we could draw on your knowledge of roads, accommodations, eateries, site seeing attractions & who knows, maybe some lodging or just some good old fashioned conversation and coffee
 
We have no idea where this might go but we would certainly like to give the idea a go. Anyone who is interested in becoming involved in this is encouraged to give me a call at work at 1-800-353-3293, (or at 1-519-376-2772 if the 800 service is not available in your state), at home at 1-519-371-4811 or by E-Mail at gordharris@gbci.on.ca. 
 
In the picture I am seen as one of Santa’s elves in our 1st official duty as a club “escorting” our Santa Claus parade float on November 19, 2011. Two of us road point for Santa. It is pretty rare that we could ride in November in these parts (Google Owen Sound, ON). Our chapter has been putting on this parade in Owen Sound for 65 yrs. 
 
Let’s get something going, contact me to make it happen. 
 
Yours in Kiwanis, 
 
Kiwanian Gord Harris
