The Widows Sons Cornerstone Grand Chapter of Colorado is chartered by the Widows Sons International Masonic Motorcycle Association and is comprised of Freemasons in the state of Colorado. Other Colorado Chapters are established under the Cornerstone Grand Chapter.
The purpose of founding the Widows Sons is to aid and assist widows and orphans of Master Masons. The Cornerstone Grand Chapter has established a fund for this purpose.
The Widows Sons provide a social and fraternal outlet for Freemasons who ride and desire to socialize with and travel the open roads with their brethren.
The Widows Sons introduce Freemasonry to the world of motorcycles and motorcycling to the world of Freemasonry.
The Widows Sons support our Blue Lodges through regular attendance and by assisting with or attending Lodge events.

I regret to inform you that our regular meeting place, Davies #2, has closed, permanently. We have been discussing moving the meeting to a weekday evening and this is forcing us to make the move. Our regular meeting for this month will be Thursday, August 19, at the Looking Good Restaurant and Lounge. The address for the restaurant is 66 Sheridan Blvd., or it’s on the SE corner of First and Sheridan. Dinner is at 6:00 PM, meeting will start at 7:00 pm. We will eat in the restaurant and then go upstairs to the meeting room for the meeting. There is no food allowed in the meeting room, beverages only. They close at 8:00 pm so we have to be timely and succinct with the meeting.
Please try to make it for fellowship and dinner as the meeting room costs nothing if we eat our meal in the restaurant. If the majority of attendees do not eat, the room costs $300.00 per hour.
We’ll give this a shot for this month and see how it works out. If it works well, we’ll do it again, if not, we’ll try something else. Hopefully, some of you who work Saturdays will be able to attend, it would be good to see you again.

We’ll meet at the Golden Lodge on Saturday, May 23, 2020 at 9:00 AM. KSU at 9:30. We’ll take the route we used for the Run for the Gap ride. It’s a good ride and lasts a few hours and there are a couple of fuel stops along the way where we can stop for refreshment and restroom as needed.
The Biker Down 2020 Look Twice Save a Life – Awareness Ride has been rescheduled for June 14th!
Our regular meeting for the month of March would have been this coming Saturday March 21 at the usual place and time. In light of the ongoing public health crisis, the fact that many of our brothers are in the high risk category, and considering we have no critical business to take care of, I’m thinking that this meeting in an unnecessary risk; therefore, the meeting for March is cancelled. We’ll try again in April. In the meantime, stay healthy, ride safe.
There will be no meeting held in December. Happy Holidays and see you on the Toy Run or if not, in 2020!
The Colorado Grand Chapter will be supporting the 2019 MC-1 Honor Run.

The 2019 Blessing of the Bikes was held at Dirty Dogs Roadhouse. Many thanks you to Dirty Dogs for their hospitality and WB Lyn Bridges for giving the Blessings! We had good attendance of both Widows Sons and the public.
A big thanks to brother Greg B. for the great pictures!
The big Motorcycle Swap Meet is at the National Western this weekend. We are meeting at McCoy’s, I-70 and Federal, at 9:00 AM both Saturday and Sunday. Get there earlier if you’re planning on having breakfast. I have heard rumor that parking costs are very high. I would suggest we car pool from McCoy’s to avoid the excessive parking fees, but that’s up to each group each day. Personally, I am planning on going on Saturday.
I hope to see you there;
