M.T.R. Riders Donate Time to Cleaning Cemetery

October 14, 2015 - Made to Ride (M.T.R.) M/C, a motorcycle group from Center, was driven by a desire to help the community and decided to volunteer some hours on Sunday, October 11th to clean up the St. Paul's cemetery on Tenaha Street which was in need of some tender loving care.

Club members selected cleaning the cemetery as a community service project. Nathan Kaluza's daughter, a 4-H student, had helped to clean the cemetery as a service project for 4-H, and Kaluza followed her lead suggesting the same. Todd Jernigan organized the volunteers who participated in the work day who were Dusten Byrd, Nathan Hathorn, Chris Barton, Nathan Kaluza, Bret Anderson Sr., William Lightbody and Christopher Brown.

The group gathered around 1pm to begin the process of cutting down overgrown bushes, mowing, and clearing debris which with the previous rainy summer months had overgrown the cemetery. The group also cleaned the fence and along the outside of the cemetery.

M.T.R. M/C is a brotherhood and a group of motorcycle enthusiasts. It is a Texas Motorcycle Roadriders Association Charter Club and a member of the Confederation of Clubs.
