To my fellow Fire Hogs,
I’d like to thank the Membership for having enough confidence in my abilities to elect me President of the Fire Hogs Motorcycle Club. It is the best Firefighter MC in the Country!!
Thanks Ted for being more of a running mate then an opponent in this election. Ted Kalnas has played an important part of this Club and will continue to do so.
I want to recognize and thank the past Presidents of the Club; Mike Kammerer and John O Connor (Seems kind of fitting as I write this on St Paddy’s Day) who together with the OG’s and past Board members, forged the Club from humble beginnings and turned it into the 120+ brotherhood we share today. I wasn’t part of the original makeup of the Club, having joined years later, but I’m astonished when I think back on what has been accomplished by a bunch of Bikers; two support rides to NYC (the last one with over 30 making the trip), rides to almost all the States in the US, having a presence in most major runs in the US., raising over $250k to give back to our brothers and their families in need, and the whole time being recognized wherever we go for what the FIRE HOGS M/C stands for ;“Brotherhood, Comradery, and Giving Back”. Lets keeping doing and building on those positive aspects of OUR Club!
I believe you have to wipe the dirt out of your eyes from the road you just traveled to clearly see the road before you. Many issues have occurred within our Club over the last few years, suffice it to say that WE as Club members are taking steps to move OUR Club in a positive direction. I look forward in working with you along that task. To accomplish this task I ask for your collective involvement, involvement by registering on the Firehogs.org website to receive timely information, coming to our quarterly meetings, organize a ride, showing up to some rides, participating in the voting process, answer your e-mails, and most importantly relish in the Brotherhood and Comradery of ALL members within YOUR Club.
It is an Honor and a Privilege to hold the position of your President. To this I toast you my Brothers !
President, Fire Hogs M/C
