Although still chilly, it has warmed enough to see several motorcycles escape from the garage (including mine!). So it’s a good time to mention the Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association of Ohio, a group not connected with, but approved of by the Grand Lodge of Ohio. They are mostly comprised of Masons (though not required) that enjoy riding and the continued fellowship of those interested in motorcycles. Our own Bro. Knoll and Bro. Bennett are active leaders of the “Middle Chamber”, the WSMRA chapter which covers the Central Ohio area including Grove City. More information from their own website:
“The Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association is an International Association which is open to all Masons who enjoy the sport of motorcycling and have a desire to ride with and associate with their fraternal brothers. Our goal is to:
Contribute to the relief of our Widows & Orphans
Raise Masonic Awareness in the world of sport motorcycling
Introduce the sport of motorcycling to our Masonic Brothers
Support the Blue Lodge through regular attendance, and assisting with or attending lodge events.
While we wear identifying patches or regalia, the Widows Sons are not a gang, MC, or 1% Club. We are required to represent the fraternity in a positive light at all times. The Widows Sons serve as a Masonic Booster Club by helping to raise Masonic Awareness while we attend public motorcycling events, and by supporting our Blue Lodges in whatever capacity we are able. Widows Sons chapters have helped to increase Masonic membership through our presence and visibility during public motorcycle events and rallies.”
