March 2018


 Greetings Folks,

   We had a wonderful Ground Hog’s Day gathering with friends, good food and robust woodchuck caroling.  Thanks go to our hosts, Jerry and MaryAnn LaRocca for another great evening at their home.  Janice LaRocca was awarded her purple FOS shirt with her title of Reservation Engineer.  Thank you, Janice, for agreeing to take on that job again during this upcoming riding season.  We appreciate you!

   We also had a short meeting and ride planning session and we decided that we will continue our tradition of having Meet and Ride events in March.  We have ride leaders and meeting locations for each ride.  If there is any doubt about whether a ride will be held or not (i.e. temperature 45* or below or it is raining/snowing or rain is expected soon) you should call the Ride Leader to see if the ride will be held.

   Our Tuesday night dinners continue through February and March.  Please mark your calendars and try to join us.  Be sure to send your reservation no later than the Monday evening before to MaryAnn LaRocca so we have a correct count for the restaurant.  Look for a reminder e-mail and you may reply to that or call or text MaryAnn at 330-705-1896.


   Remaining dates for dinner………….
February 13th 6:00 p.m. – John’s Bar, 2749 Cleveland Ave. NW, Canton
February 27th 6:00 p.m. –Twisted Olive, 5430 Massillon Rd. N., Canton

   Also, be sure to check out our Facebook page, Folks on Spokes-Stark.  Keep up with all the FOS happenings.
