Combat Vets appreciative

To the Times of Ti:

The Combat Vets Motorcycle Association Chapter 19-3 would like to send out a heartfelt appreciation to all the people and business in making our fourth annual Ghost Ride a success on July 23, 2011.

This benefit this year was to raise funds for the Disabled American Veterans and the Veterans Assistant Fund in Clinton, Franklin and Essex County. The Disabled American Veterans also joined the ride with their transport van and three representatives.

We would also like to thank Thomas Scozzafava (town of Moriah Supervisor) for his speech and participation in our ride. A special thank you to Sen. (Bill) Owens for coming to our event and for his speech at the Raymond ”Buzz” Wright Memorial. To Mineville VFW Post 5802, Color Guard. The VFW Post 146 for the use of the building for this event. Knights of Columbus and staff for the benefit dinner.

Our hearts were overwhelmed with the appreciation and generosity of the town of Moriah, town of Ticonderoga, village of Port Henry and town of Crown Point businesses and the people that came out to show their support for our veterans. To all the riders that participated in the ride, our hearts and souls were deeply touch to have you all take part in our fourth annual Ghost Ride this year and we hope to see you all next year.

A very special thank you to Nappy Marcott and Bruce Cox for donating their time and cooker for our barbeque. To WOKO for the broadcasting of our event ahead of time and the live broadcasting Friday night at the VFW.

Darlene Treadway for opening on Sunday for all CVMA members to have a home cooked breakfast before returning home. Peggy Quain for her help getting the Veteran Van to come be on site for the veterans.
