Founded in 1998 by Rick “Rickster” Perry, the Southern Cruisers Riding Club is a free, all brands, no dues, family-oriented motorcycle riding club that focuses on the enjoyment and fellowship of riding motorcycles. The Conroe Chapter founded by its first 1st Officer, Howard “SpEd” Camardelle in 1999 now has approximately 150 members. The SCRC requires no membership dues, no mandatory meetings or events, and welcome riders of any street legal motorcycle, no matter what motorcycle you own.
The club really comes together for the charity rides. This is the fourth year the riding club has raised money for Meals on Wheels Montgomery County. More information available on their website at www.SouthernCruisers.net.
With a mission to foster independence and maintain the dignity of each homebound senior by providing nutritious meals, transportation, and caring connections, MOWMC can always use additional support, donations, and volunteers.
Since 1973, MOWMC has had a successful track record of delivering meals to local homebound seniors, currently delivering 31,000 meals weekly. Volunteers deliver meals along 81 routes throughout the 1,000 square miles of Montgomery County. As Baby Boomers become seniors, demand continues to increase. Seniors in need of meals are added to the waiting list each month.
Additionally, MOWMC’s curb-to-curb transportation service provides more than 17,000 rides to the disabled and seniors annually. The organization’s mission is to foster independence and maintain the dignity of each homebound senior by providing nutritious meals, transportation, and caring connections.
