FX Thunder H.O.G. E-Newsletter | News from the May Get Together
Sunday Funday Breakfast
is May 21, 10am
at Meme's Diner in Felts Mills
Feed the HOG
While at ROC (Regional Officer Connection) Training, we heard from other Chapters on how they do things.

One thing we learned about is how one Chapter "Feeds the HOG" -they've got a piggy bank in their HOG room where members can donate. That money goes right back to the Chapter Members by way of Gas Cards, Dinner for the Winner, Birthday Cake and more.

That's why you'll see this HOG in our Room -feed him as you will!!
