You should know

If you read Keith's post below you will notice a reference to his dad, Doug Miner.

Doug was one of the original eight charter members of the Blue Knights International Motorcycle Club
If you click on the link you will read that:

As of January 1, 2007, we have 586 chapters and almost 20,000 members in 28 countries. Twenty Thousand members from the original 8 in 1974!

As of 30 September 2007 Blue Knights have donated to numerous charities; contributing time in the amount of 162,289.5 man hours (@ $20 per hour), goods with an estimated value of $562,572.37 and $5,154,603.73 in cash for a total of $8,962,966.61

Pretty awesome when you think about it-----Almost 9 million dollars for charity. Tough act to follow. That's something everyone in the family should know and be proud of. The international headquarters is still located in Bangor at 38 Alden Street.
