17th - Natchitoches, LA
In July of 2012, Brother's Keepers MC (BKMC) Chapter 17 was chartered and the foundation was laid of what would become a dynamic and dedicated group of men and women who share a commitment to the Fire Service and a love of motorcycle riding.
Centrally located in Natchitoches, Louisiana (the oldest town in the Louisiana Purchase), our Chapter is comprised of both Professional and Volunteer Firefighters, representing many of the surrounding rural and urban Fire Protection Districts and Departments.
The Mission of BKMC 17th is twofold;
1. To undertake fundraising efforts benefitting the Shriners' Hospitals for Children©, a healthcare system that offers high levels of specialized care (burns, orthopedics, and spinal cord injuries) to children at no charge to the families. Our particular focus is on the Shreveport, Louisiana hospital, which was the very first hospital designated in the Shriners' healthcare network in 1922.
2. To provide a unique social outlet for members of the Fire Service in our area who share a passion for riding motorcycles and the camaraderie of the open road.
BKMC 17th encourages all Fire Service members who enjoy riding their motorcycle to contact their nearest BKMC Chapter for more information on how to join our international organization.
