To The Leader

Blue Iron is a motorcycle club for law enforcement officers in the Golden Triangle. The 12-member club is part of the international Blue Iron organization and is Texas’ Original Chapter. The group was formed for those who enjoy the freedom of riding.

 They are a 501(c)3 that supports the community through charitable activities and events. This year’s main fundraiser was to provide Christmas gifts for the Life Skills class at Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School. The group raffled a fire pit to provide the funds to buy gifts and were so successful, that they could buy everything on the students’ wish list.

Blue Iron showed up with several huge bags brimming with gifts for the students. They each got to sit with Santa and Mrs. Claus and have their photos made.

According to Hope Etheridge, secretary of the organization, members share the love of riding motorcycles, of law enforcement, and most of all share the importance of a “family first” attitude. For additional information on Blue Iron, go to Facebook and look for Blue Iron Law Enforcement.
