Flaming Knights Washington, DC Chapter celebrates with Ft. Harley-Davidson new owner Mr. Thomas Moorehead

Flaming Knights – Washington, DC Chapter is celebrating its second annual Community Day with the new ownership of the Harley Davidson of Washington, DC., 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 21 at the dealership, located at 9407 Livingston Road, Ft. Washington, MD. The event will feature a live band featuring Swamp Dog, a variety of local vendors, a motorcycle swap meet, food and giveaways.

This collaboration between the Flaming Knights and the new management at the HD dealership Washington marks the start of a new era in the area. The dealership was recently purchased by Thomas A. Moorehead, one of few minority HD owners in the country. Moorehead and his management team have made a commitment to improve the location and reach out more to the community.

“We want to become the people’s choice store for Harley Davidson Motorcycles, Service and Apparel,” said Carroll Stewart, (HD Management). “We want to hear the needs and the concerns of the community because we are determined to use that feedback to grow this location and build a reputation not only with the variety of models but also with exemplary customer service.”

This is just one of the events in which the Flaming Knights’ DC chapter participates in order to give back to the community. The club also has a yearly blanket drive, turkey giveaway, toy drive for children and most recently adopted a section of Indian Head Highway in Fort Washington, MD.

“Our goal is to make a difference in our community and improve the perception of motorcycle clubs,” said Anderson Morgan (A-ROD), vice president of the Flaming Knight’s DC chapter. “We are honored to work with Mr. Moorehead and the new management at the Harley Davidson of Washington. We believe this is just the beginning of the positive partnerships we will see coming from the dealership and the local community.”
