Chapter Director
Winter is here for a short time (hopefully).  Since today was Veteran's Day,
 we had a noon appreciation dinnerfor area veterans and spouses, then most attended the
 program at school, which was excellent as usual. Good thing Thanksgiving is on it's way
 and we can give thanks for everything in life we have. High school bowling is soon over
 with districts in Columbus on Nov. 18th, so I won't make themeeting - darn anyway!!
 This month's meeting is in Seward at Nebraska National Guard Museum,eating at 1130
, with Stamm's hosting.  Thank you to Al Kuta for hosting last month's meeting atthe bowling alley.
  Our annual Christmas party will be at Newman Grove Bowl on Dec. 2nd, eating at12:00.
 Each member is to bring a $10 toy of some kind for the Toys for Tots. 

 NE-SD District Winter Event – Cabin Fever 2019. February 22-23, 2019  Ramada Inn,  Grand Island,
Other than work, church, hunting, and sleeping, not much going on in my part of the county,
so happy dreaming about future riding.

       Thanskgiving Safety    

For most, the kitchen is the heart of the home, especially during the holidays. 

From testing family recipes to decorating cakes and cookies, 

everyone enjoys being part of the preparations.

So keeping fire safety top of mind in the kitchen during this joyous but hectic time is important,
especially when there’s a lot of activity and people at home. As you start preparing your
holiday schedule and organizing that large family feast, remember, by following a few 
simple safety tips you can enjoy time with your loved ones and keep yourself 
and your family safer from fire.

Thanksgiving by the numbers
  • Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, followed by the day before
  •  Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. and Christmas Eve.
  • In 2015, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 1,760 home cooking fires on
  •  Thanksgiving, the peak day for such fires.
  • Unattended cooking was by far the leading contributing factor in cooking fires and fire deaths.
  • Cooking equipment was involved in almost half of all reported home fires and home
  •  fire injuries, and it is the second leading cause of home fire deaths.

Safety tips
  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
  • Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
  • Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables,
  •  gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
  • Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
  • Keep knives out of the reach of children.
  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not
  •  dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
  • Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.
Live every day like its your last, one day you will get it right!

October Mystery Person
Don Blessen

New for 2018, now that everyone is in the habit of Hugging and Shaking hands
we are going to have a designated Hugger & Shaker at every Get-Together,
Our September Hugger & Shaker will be Dan Hamling, In the past the Mystery
Person was the 5th Hug or Shake, now it is up to the Hugger or Shaker to decide 
what he or she wants for a Mystery Person Honor, it could still be a predetermined 
number like in the past or something new like the tallest or shortest hugger or shaker,
or who smelled the best, who has the newest or oldest ride, who has the best hug or handshake, 
who traveled the farthest to the get-together, these are just ideas the monthly hugger &
 shaker can do whatever they want. Each month we will have a new hugger & shaker
 you will have to read the newsletter to find out who they are.
The new GWRRA MOTTO is participate, participate, participate....
