Wheels and Deals #HugoftheWeek, goes to Holly Christie, WHO ORGANIZED GOLF FORE CARE !!

Golf Fore Care is an important event that the Foundation organizes to raise funds to improve the quality of life of residents at York Care Center so we can offer them activities and programs that are not funded by government. This year the funds raised will go to improve dementia care. It is something that touches almost every family! Without fundraising, programs such as therapeutic activities and memory clinics would not be available to our residents.

Artist Statement

“Quintessential: the purest, most perfect or most typical form, manifestation or embodiment of some quality or class. This photo depicts the Quintessential Canadian. I find there are many symbols in this photo that truly represent Canada. We can see my father, a second generation Canadian of Dutch descent, wearing traditional Aboriginal snowshoes. I think that this demonstrates the multiculturalism of this country. He is walking on a large ice sheet in Chaleur Bay, the name of which is attributed to Jacques Cartier, one of the first explorers of Canada. On the other side of the Bay, we can see Quebec. This reminds us that our country has two official languages. I find that these are all signature elements of Canada that define this country very well.”
– Eric Duivenvoorden

FMC History

bikes

We are approximately 55 to 75 members, with the numbers going up and down.  Approximately 20 % of our members are Lady Riders while others ride with their partners.

FMC members ages range from 15 to 65+ and children and grandchildren of the bikers are sometimes unofficial members.

We meet most Sunday mornings in the summer and on the second Sunday of each month in the off season; 9 am in riding season and 10 am fall, winter, spring.  In the winter we socialize, in the summer we eat and then ride. Typically all day.   Generally we have an official meeting the second Sunday of each month during breakfast.

In the last few years we have been running a Wednesday evening ride for anyone that wants to ride with us.  These runs are usually 1.5 to 2 hours in duration.

Current Executive:

President, Victor Griffiths

Vice President, Frank Quirk

Treasurer, Dian Casey

Secretary, Janet Somers

Road Captain, John Aird

Past President, Don Comeau

The Club was formed in the fall of 1982 by Colin and Nancy Carsons.  Colin was on the N.B. Safety Council and got others from the council to join.

The first president was Mike Fenety.  We had our very first Toy Ride the summer of 1985 and have held a Toy Ride every single summer since.

The FMC is the longest continuous supporter of the Children’s ward of the D.E.C.H.  We organize our fund raising efforts with Crystal Doucette the director of child life services.  We also support other clubs and their charitable fund raising events.

Other One Day Events include Pool Party, Corn Boil, etc.  (We like to have fun!!!)

Some examples of One Day Rides:

Saint Andrews / Saint John Loop

Deer Island / Campobello Island Loop

Edmundston / Madawaska Loop

Blackville / Plaster Rock Loop

S.J. River Valley Ferry’s

Grammy’s Restaurant – Houtlon, ME

Bangor for lunch

Some of our Weekend runs have included:

Camden, ME

Quebec City

And occasionally we do longer rides:

Boston, MA

Cabot Trail

Gaspe

North Carolina

People generally enjoy being around other people who enjoy the same likes and passion.  Our link is the motorcycle.  The freedom of the open road, no distractions, no radio, just two wheels and the wind.  However when you stop for a break it’s always nice if you have a fellow rider that can share your sights and joys of the road.  Many members join the club so they can meet other rider.  It’s nice to know that if you get up on a Sunday morning, the sun is shining and the skies are clear, all you have to do is show up at a pre-determined site!  There will always be at least one biker ready to go, half day, full day, what ever your heart desires.

We help each other, not only do we promote safe riding but as well we share technical information.  Most of our members find that over time their relationship changes from being a member of a club to a gathering of close friends.

The summer of 2014 was our 30th Annual Toy Ride.

Past Presidents:

Mike Fenety       1982 – 1990
Mike Jardine       1991 – 1994
Doug Fowler       1995 – 1996
Roy Cantle          1997 – 2000
Dany Falle           2001 – 2002
Victor Griffiths    2003 – 2008

The Jim Gilbert’s Hug of the Week, Goes to The TUCKER CHILDREN” ABBY 8 & LIAM 6″

1125100

Abby and Liam, Raising money for a security gate for Shepherd’s House, and Orphanage in Haiti. They have raised 2000$!     so far with the goal of $2500 …. Parents Gregg and Sandy Tucker….. Make a Donation Today (Cell 261-6901)

Canada’s Huggable Car Dealer,  will be giving Abby and Liam, one of our Signature 3 foot Singing Teddy Bears and a $20.00 Gas Card for being selected “The Jim Gilberts Wheels and Deals of the Week” for their very helpful efforts..

Shepherd’s House Orphanage Project: We are excited that you are joining with us in the mandate given to Evangelist Aaron Nelson and his wife Nathalie Nelson to help the less fortunate in Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.

Our Goals and Vision:
The SHM was organized exclusively for charitable purposes. Specifically, our main activities are as follows:

A Better Life:
Daily life is a struggle of survival for the children in Haiti. An estimated 65 percent of the population lives in poverty. In Rural areas that number is about 80 percent. More than 200 000 kids live in the streets. Our goal is to save as many as we can by bringing them off the streets and out of poverty to a new home and teach them the skills necessary to lift themselves out of misery and into a bright future.

Health Care:
Infant mortality is 76 per 1,000 births. More than 1 child in 10 died before the age of 5. There is only 1 physician for ever 17, 064 inhabitants. (Haiti population is about 9 million) Upon arrival at the organization, each child will receive a good health care program. We will hire a private doctor for them. Ever child will undergo several medical tests during their first 6 months and/or every time when need be. The best medicine and vitamins will be provided when needed.

Better Nutrition:
Malnutrition affects almost every child in Haiti. At Shepherd’s House Ministries, the children will be provided with clean water, vitamins, and 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner.)

Better Education:
40 percent of the population is under the age of 14. Close to half of primary aged children are not attending schools. Haiti had an illiteracy rate of over 55 percent, the highest in the Americas. Our children will attend a non-discriminatory primary-secondary school in the country. We will use every good tool necessary such as: Reading materials, tutors, field trips, and sports to better educate those precious souls. We believe that every child has a right to go to school and we will make it happen.

When one comes under, they will be fed, clothed, loved, and housed. They will receive treatment for their addictions and illnesses. They will be counseled, served, listened to, educated, and edified to their highest potential.

Operation Compassion:
Operation Compassion is to provide, information, and resources to help fulfill the call to feed the hungry, care for the elderly and to reach out to those in need.

Men and Women of Action:
Our mission will provide men and women the opportunity to show the love of Christ by participating in hands-on ministry through volunteer service in construction, disaster relief and humanitarian assistance while enhancing other ministries so that they will be more effective, efficient and fruitful in their participation in the Great Commission.

Youth:
To mobilize a generation of disciples that know, love and follow Jesus Christ and actively advance the kingdom of God to the nations of the earth. To cultivate a discipleship movement that will gather, equip, mobilize, and make disciples, that will perpetuate disciples that make disciples, leaders that develop leaders, and churches that plant churches.

To accomplish these goals, Shepherd’s House Ministries purchased land in Gressier, Haiti in June 2007. Engineering Ministries International (EMI) went to Haiti to design the orphanage at Shepherd’s House request. The design includes two Dormitories, a K-12 School, a Multiuse Building (with kitchen, dining, chapel, and study facilities), a Sports field and open space for the children to play and explore. Each dorm will house 100 children in ten bedrooms, one for girls and the other for boys. The school will allow the children to receive a traditional education with opportunities to learn trades and life skills.

Utilities are required to sustain and educate each child and the new property has no water or sewer and although electricity is nearby, it is expensive and undependable. Therefore this design includes potable water system with a well and for the waste water; a septic/leach field system. For power, a diesel back up generator is included. A future self sustaining electrical/power system is desired; possibility utilizing Solar power.

Please prayerfully consider how may become part of this labor of love to glorify God and serve the children of Haiti. We look forward to hearing how the Lord leads you. If you would like more information please contact us.

THE JIM GILBERT’S WHEELS AND DEALS #HugOfTheWeek GOES TO… CARTER MCLAUGHLIN, AND 100 MEN WHO CARE FREDERICTON !! JOIN CARTER AND OTHER LOCAL MEN WHO SHOW HOW “MANLY” THEY ARE… BY MAKING A MEASURABLE, POSITIVE IMPACT IN THE GREATER FREDERICTON AREA !! FROM CANADA’S HUGGABLE CAR DEALER & Bell Media

100 Men Who Care are Very honoured to be the recipient (along with all members of @100MenWhoCare) of @WheelsandDeals “Hug of the Week this week.

100 men who care gleaner picture         Austism 100 men who care

Very happy to report that we presented cheques to Autism Connections Fredericton tonight amounting to $8900 by the time the evening was over and all cheques counted. This number hopes to inflate to at least $9500 in the next day. If you’d like to contribute, you don’t even have to be a member. You can drop off a cheque for $100, made out to “Autism Connections Fredericton” to Vagrant Creative100 Men Who Care

Care like a man. Show your community just how manly you can be by joining other local men who want to make a measurable, positive impact right here in the Greater Fredericton Area.

So we get 100 (or more) manly men (guys, dudes, bros, gentlemen, whatever you prefer) together, each with a $100 cheque in their pocket to give to 1 local charity that we all vote on that night. BAM! $10,000 in real money to a charity in our own backyard. We do it 4 times a year.

How do you get involved? It’s simple. You join us right here on this website and make a commitment to donating $100 4 times in that year. When you sign up, you nominate a charity. Then you stand by your commitment shoulder to shoulder with other local men… attend the meetings and bring your cheque!  It couldn’t be more simple.  JOIN US and make a difference.

How We Work

You don’t have to give a lot, alone.  You just have to give a little, together.  It’s a simple concept that enables us to make a positive impact in our community, together as a group of like-minded men.

The Basics

We don’t technically exist.  We are not registered.  We have no directors, presidents or treasurers.  We have no bank account.  We have no operating budget, because our members write their cheques directly to the recipient charity.  “We”, collectively, are just a group of guys getting together because we care about our community.  We are not an entity, but a movement.  Our core group of organizers are simply volunteers generously donating their time to try and make a difference.

The goal of the group is to support the wonderful work our local charities do, in funds, exposure, and awareness.

How It Works

  • Charities are nominated by the membership. There are eligibility requirements.
  • 3 charities are randomly chosen by blind draw from our list of member-nominated charities.
  • Representatives from the 3 selected charities will be asked to make a five-minute presentation to the group about that charities initiative and why they are deserving of the group’s vote.
  • After the presentations, a ballot is held and the charity with the most votes by simple majority will be the recipient.
  • All members must then write out their cheque to the charity with the most votes – no exceptions.
  • The selected organization will receive a group donation of $10,000 or more.
  • All the cheques are collected by the organizing committee and given to the chosen charity that evening.

Guidelines

  • Members who did not vote for the selected organization must make their donation to the charity voted on by the majority of those in attendance.
  • If a member misses a meeting, he must provide
  • Members will receive a tax receipt directly from the organization.
  • There is no proxy voting, but members who cannot attend must ensure their blank cheque (in a sealed envelope) reaches their ‘buddy’ or the meeting organizers before the meeting starts.
  • Organizations under consideration must serve the Greater Fredericton Area and provide individual tax receipts directly to contributing members.
  • The recipient charity is not eligible to be nominated/presented for 2 (two) years. The other two charities may be nominated/presented again after 6 (six) months.  The exception is a specific program within a large organization (for example a specific department or program within a hospital), which may be considered again for a different program or department at any time.
  • Ties will be decided by a draw.
  • The selected organization must agree not to give out member information to any third parties except for tax purposes.
  • Each meeting will open with a five minute update on how the funds donated at the previous meeting were used by the successful organization.
  • Meetings are diligently conducted in one hour or less (with ample opportunity for networking prior to each meeting).

Please visit our FAQs page to get answers to all your questions!

Where It Happens

To minimize our costs, we depend on the generosity of those interested in hosting our meetings every three months.

If you have a venue and would like to host a meeting, please contact us and we can work out the details.

Maybe you care too…

  • If you want to make a big impact your own community…
  • If you know that it’s more manly to care…
  • If you want to stand together with other men in your community to make a difference…
  • If you are a man of your word and can make a commitment…

Then please Join Us and we’ll change our community together.

Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada – January 4, 2014 Flow Home Cleaning is a locally-owned business that has teamed up with Cleaning For A Reason, an international nonprofit foundation. Flow Cleaning is dedicated to being Fredericton’s favorite home cleaning service by offering consistent, professional, and friendly customer service. Flow wants their clients to come home to a fresh, perfectly clean home and to feel their stress melt away as they step in the door. The service is personalized and clients are guaranteed 100 percent happiness and satisfaction. The staff at Flow are covered by company-funded health benefits plan and protected by WorkSafe NB. Owner Monica Danielski wants Flow Home Cleaning to be seen as a company that cares for their clients, their staff, and also their community in which they live.

Danielski states, “I could not imagine how overwhelming and difficult it would be to undergo cancer treatments, while at the same time have to take care of your family and home. It might sound small to some, but we strongly believe that having a clean home can make a difference. In the past we have cleaned for clients dealing with critical illness and they told us we helped to make their home a place to heal and invite others in. Dealing with illness can also be an isolating experience and many clients said that our visits were the highlight of their week. We are so pleased to be joining with Cleaning For A Reason who will help us connect with women facing incredibly difficult times. We are hoping that the donated cleanings will make their lives just a little easier.”

Cleaning for a reason

The company has agreed to help women battling cancer by cleaning two homes per month for four consecutive months at no charge. The only requirement is that the homes be within the company’s existing service area of Fredericton and surrounding areas. For more information about this company, go to http://www.flowcleaners.com.

Cleaning For A Reason strives to aid women who are battling cancer by teaming up with professional cleaning companies across the United States and Canada. Together, these two forces offer free house cleaning to meet the needs of women, and since 2006, have donated more than $4.6 million in free services, helping more than 16,000 women with cancer. Based in Lewisville, TX, Cleaning For A Reason works with more than 1,200 residential cleaning companies and continues to grow and gain support.

The Nashwaaksis Lions Club in Fredericton has joined forces with the city’s three public libraries to promote reading.

The organization donated $3,000 worth of brand new books to children in Fredericton during the Read & Roar Book Giveaway Saturday.

Children who stopped by one of the city’s three public libraries were able to choose a brand new book to take home with them.

Richard Buchanan, a member of the Lions Club, says they wanted to do their part to help improve global literacy rates.

Buchanan says they were able to buy the roughly 600 books through fundraising efforts like a weekly radio bingo, bottle drives and ticket drives.

He says the organization will evaluate Saturday’s event, and may consider doing it on a regular basis in the future.
