CROWN POINT, Ind. (November 26, 2018) – Snowflakes and wet roads did not stop Latin American Motorcycle Association of Crown Point from delivering Thanksgiving dinners to several families in Lake County Indiana and neighboring Illinois suburbs last week.

“It was a humbling experience. I have much in my life to give thanks for, and providing this small gesture of kindness made me proud to be part of L.A.M.A. Crown Point”, said L.A.M.A. secretary Jose Munoz, Jr.

East Chicago resident Sylvia Perez was overwhelmed when members of L.A.M.A. Crown Point delivered a Thanksgiving meal filled with all the trimmings. “We do not have any family here, and now I can give my children a good Thanksgiving,” she told the riders. “This was so nice and I am so thankful.”

In years past L.A.M.A. Crown Point held a food drive among their members in order to serve others in their community. This year, however, food items were purchased from the club’s funds. “Our dues can be used for different types of events, and we voted to give back to our community,” said L.A.M.A. member Gilberto Romero.

“It was nice to know that we brought some comfort to hurting families, whether it’s emotional, financial, or both,” said Munoz, Jr.

L.A.M.A. Crown Point is an organization that fosters diversity and fellowship, promoting a positive image of motorcycle riders through volunteering and neighborhood initiatives. L.A.M.A. consists of people from around the globe who value family, integrity, and loyalty and who have a passion for motor touring.
