Dagwood said to Blondie, that according to a study, hot tea is a healthier beverage than coffee. So Blondie asks, “Do you want to start drinking tea Dear? “ Nope,” says Dagwood,” I like coffee. “I’ll just stick with coffee and wait for a study that I can live with.” And that’s often the way many respond when face with life’s choices. We wait for that which pleases us, we want to do it our own way. But that can be a very poor response, especially when it pertains to things eternal. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived once said, “There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.” And Jesus, referring to the next life said,” Enter by the narrow gate; for wideisthe gate and broadisthe way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.Becausenarrowisthe gate and difficultisthe way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

Welcome to the New Year. We pray that this will be a year that will see our Chapter grow in God’s grace, grow in spirit, grow in numbers, and grow in our Christian walk! Please remember to pray for our Chapter, and especially for the officers …
Remember, the 2nd Friday Night of every month is our Chapter Meeting Night. We are resuming our meetings in Howe’s Cave, at the Caverns Palace (formerly known as Borrelli’s) on Route 7. Dining / Fellowship starting around 6, and the meeting at 7:30.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
Just a reminder that Monday night, New Year’s Eve, we will be serving at the Capital City Rescue Mission – meet there at 5:30pm.
Following the mission, Carol and Arvid are hosting a New Year’s Eve Party at their house, 988 Beards Hollow Rd. in Richmondville. Hope to see you all out for one or both of these events.
May God revive and bless our country in 2013.
Just a reminder that the Christmas Party is the only Chapter event occurring in December; Should the Lord tarry, the Officer and Chapter Meetings will resume in January.
Crossroad Riders annual Christmas Party will be held at Carol and Arvid’s House (988 Beards Hollow Road, Richmondville) on Saturday December 8th, starting at 5pm. Everyone should bring a food dish to pass (preferably with food in it).
Please RSVP to Carol Oksa by December 2 with the number of people coming and whatcha bringing.

If you have a minute, be sure to check out the pictures from the Home 4 Joe Ride and Event as well as Catskill Thunder in our Gallery.
There were somewhere around 800 Motorcycles and 1500 people who came out to support Sgt Joe Wilkinson and his family to raise support for a new home for them.
This event was the final one over the summer and was an unqualified success! Joe is a Gulf War Veteran who contracted something that has left him in a wheelchair. The house will be specially constructed to assist with his needs.
At Catskill Thunder, we fed hundreds (yes hundreds) of folks (vendors, club members, etc etc) over the four day event under our tents. Saturday Lunch was the peak, with over 125 hot meals provided to our friends at Blackthorne. Many folks came out, ate, and stayed and chatted for hours. There was great support from our Chapter as well as MELCHiZEDEKS MC in making this a resounding successful 4 days!
One of the many club members we fed commented “You guys have restored the family atmosphere that we used to enjoy back in the 60′s but seems to have been lost in most places”. Amen!
