Bike Week 2002
Gathering
The first annual Widows Sons Bike Week Gathering was a rousing success!  The group started out in the Tampa Bay area, rolled through Eagle Lake, Orlando and into Daytona Beach by which time we had over 20 bikes, 1 car and 1 Hummer (Bro. Mike blocked traffic for us with his new toy), and over 30 folks in attendance.  We were honored in having 4 Brothers from our affiliate in Maine also join us!  Go to the Widows Photo Gallery for some pics of the event.
Hope to see YOU there next year.
 
Widows Sons Provide Motorcycle Escort for FL Grand Master!

The Widows Sons were the motorcycle escort for the Most Worshipful Glenn Phillips, Grand Master of Masons in Florida at the annual Masonic Home parade in Tampa on Sunday, 10 February.

 
Motorcycle Degree now History!

The Motorcycle Degree a rousing success!! The outdoor motorcycle E.A. degree put on by Tampa Lodge this Saturday was a great success. Over 40 motorcycles and over twice that many Brothers attended this event. We believe this was the first such event in the history of Florida Freemasonry!

And the Widows Sons were there!
