"I think my mom would be very happy that our family pulled together to do this," Freeman said of Ride to Remember. "She would be glad we are taking what turned our family upside-down and turning it around to help other families cope with it."
The 5th annual Ride to Remember will be held at American Legion Post 1619, 219 Rand Hill Road, West Plattsburgh, this Saturday, July 10. The event will begin with registration at 9:30 a.m., with the ride to follow at 10:30 a.m.
Following the ride, at approximately 1:30 p.m., the post will host a barbecue, auction and 50/50 drawings. Performances by Angry Neighbors, Bootleg and The Jay Walkin Band will round out the afternoon.
The cost to register for the motorcycle ride is $15 per rider or $25 for a rider and passenger, which includes the price of the barbecue. Those wishing to only enjoy the barbecue will be charged $10 each. The event will be held rain or shine.
Those interested in registering for the ride or in obtaining more information, may contact Freeman at 293-6496. Registration forms are also available at Lake City Choppers, 594 State Route 3; Caron's Cycles, 40 S. Junction Road; and American Legion Post 1619.
