TO: ALL NEW BLUE KNIGHTS® MEMBERS
On behalf of all Blue Knights’ around the world, I would like to take a moment and welcome you to our “family.”
As you may be aware, the Blue Knights is an organization comprising Law Enforcement Officers from every aspect of the job and from many areas of the world. It’s an organization that started in Bangor, Maine in 1974, when a few friends, all connected with Law Enforcement, started riding motorcycles together. From this, the idea of the club was formed and, because they were all connected with law enforcement, the name Blue Knights was chosen. From the original seven members, our organization has grown to almost 20,000 members and currently represents twenty six countries worldwide. Our International Office is located in Bangor, Maine and is open to anyone to visit during regular business hours Monday thru Friday.
Each year, during the month of July, we hold our annual International Convention, where Blue Knights from around the world gather and share the pleasures of motorcycling, while renewing old friendships and making new ones.
If you should have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to call or write me or any of the International Board members. The office staff, Bessie Small (Manager) and her assistant, is also available to assist you by calling 207-947-4600 (Eastern Time).
As you join our “family”, remember, there are no strangers in the Blue Knights, only friends you haven’t met. We’re looking forward to seeing you at Blue Knights functions.
Until our paths cross . . .
“ Ride with Pride”
International Executive Board 2005-2006 President, Connie Flanagan Vice President, Mike Ripsch Secretary, Patrick O. Fox Treasurer, Jerry Bryan
