Thanks for AMVETS Charity Ride

Editor:

I want to thank everyone that took part in the AMVETS charity ride for Children’s Hospital Burn Unit. We had a great turnout and raised over $8,000.

A big thank you for all of the donations from the local businesses, and to everyone who contributed. Thanks to the local taverns that participated.. These events are not possible without everyone’s support. Please support and thank them.

Thank you to all the volunteers, AMVETS employees and the club’s support.We apologize for the delay and distribution of the door prizes. We were short handed, the auction ran longer than expected and with the Saturday night drawing, a lot of prizes were not distributed. Again we are sorry that we did not get these out to the participants as planned.

A special thanks to our auctioneer Ron Baker for his donated time and his humor. Hope everyone had a good time and again we thank you all very much for your charitable support for this event.
