Boilermakers bike for brotherhood

Riders from two locals travel Indiana for fun and camaraderie

ABOUT TWO DOZEN motorcycles rolled out of Elkhart, Ind., Sept. 17 carrying a caravan of Boilermakers, family members, and guests. Active and retired members of Local 85 (Toledo, Ohio) and Local 374 (Hammond, Ind.) took part in the event, organized for the enjoyment of the ride and to share in brotherhood and camaraderie. The bikers rode from northern Indiana to the southern part of the state, returning to central Indiana before heading home.

L-85 President and Assistant Business Manager Matthew Cornett Jr. said next year’s event will be open to all Boilermakers. “All are welcome,” he said. “This is just Boilermakers from all over getting together to ride.”

Members interested in participating can contact Cornett at mcibb85@bex.net.
