Hampden Angler’s waitress gets $ 1,200 tip from Red Knights MC


A motorcycle club of firefighters gave a huge gift to a waitress at Angler’s restaurant in Hampden, in response to a global challenge.

Who are the Red Knights?

The Red Knights ME VI are a great group of people. First of all, they’ve spent their careers fighting fires which is great in itself. And now, as members of the Red Knights Motorcycle Club, they spend their free time fundraising and then donate the money to a deserving person / organization.

When this kind-hearted group learned of a Global Challenge from an out-of-state chapter, they decided it sounded like a great idea. Take the whole club to eat and surprise the waiter with a huge tip. So they started working on their own plan to meet the challenge, including accepting nominations for deserving waiters and finding a matching restaurant that could accommodate them all.

Who was the lucky waiter?

On Wednesday evening, the Red Knights ME VI, all 22, went to the Angler’s Restaurant in Hampden. Their waitress was Emma Gagnon, who had been appointed before their arrival. She didn’t know it, however, and the Red Knights wondered, on their Facebook page, if she thought she got the “short straw.” I mean, think about it. She had a banquet hall full of people in biker jackets to wait on and was probably worried they would get a little rowdy. But they said she was smiling and being very nice to them all.

The trick …

At the end of the meal, a club member presented her with a Christmas card and encouraged her to open it. When she did, she found a tip of $ 1,200. I guess that will make her vacation a lot brighter. On their Facebook page, the Red Knights said: “You treated twenty-two guests, all in stride, with a smile on your face. It is you who is you. Don’t change being you.

Congratulations Emma! Looks like it’s well deserved.
