April 19: The annual Easter egg hunt starts
promptly at 1 p.m. Salt Creek members wanting to help set up should
be there at 11 a.m. The egg hunt will be at Kickapoo Creek Park, at
the last pavilion. The activity is open to children up to 12 years
old. Bring a bag for your little ones to use to bring their goodies
home. The Salt Creek Chapter will give away two special baskets in
each of three age groups. A tricycle, a girls' bicycle and a boys'
bicycle will also be given away. Come join the fun and watch your
little one possibly find the eggs with the special giveaways.
April 26: Sport Bike Show in Decatur, at the Prairieland
clubhouse, sponsored by the East Central Region. For details, check
April 27: Highway cleanup at 8 a.m. The group will meet at
the empty lot by the bowling alley. Due to the construction on the
Salt Creek bridge just south of Lincoln, the spring cleanup will go
only to the cemetery road. The chapter will have grabbers and pokers
this year so it will make it much easier on the backs. Challenge:
"Let's have a great turnout so we can whip this out in about 30
minutes or less."
Also on April 27 is a "Blessing of Bikes" for those who have
missed a different one. The event will be at Zero Tolerance at 1
p.m. and there will be free food. This is not sponsored by the
Lincoln chapter but is something for members to be aware of.

Meat raffle tickets are still out and need to be sold, with
money turned in by May 24. Members who feel they cannot sell the
tickets are asked to call a chapter officer to make arrangements so
someone else can sell them.
The chapter's regular meeting day and time has been
changed. As of the May meeting, the group will meet the first
Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. So that makes the next meeting May
1. That is also the date when the chapter will start having their
meetings at Kickapoo Creek Park, at the first pavilion.
