The Cedar Lake American Post 261 Legion Riders will be hosting their 5th annual “Ride for Vets”. Sunday August 7, 2011. The Cost is $20 (Single) - $30 (Double). Donation includes: Pins for rider and passenger, Food, Keg Beer and entertainment by none other than “Wise Guys”. Raffles will also be held, all of which will benefit Indiana Veterans Home in Lafayette.
Riders Director Mike Jacobs said, “Last year we were hindered by morning rain and that definitely affected the turn out, even though the rest of the day was beautiful. I am hoping for a nice day all around this year so that we might raise the much needed funds for these brave men and women who served our nation so very proudly.
Registration will be from 9:30am – noon with the blessing of the bikes and 1st bikes out at 11:30am, and all bikes out by noon. “3 and 4 wheeled vehicles are welcome also. Remember it’s all about Indiana Veterans Home.” said Jacobs. If you cannot partake in the run but wish to grab a bite to eat, have some beer and enjoy the sounds of “Wise Guys” the cost is only $12.
