PLYMOUTH â€” For the fifth year, motorcycle riders from several Indiana counties will be riding together to raise funds for the many programs of the Plymouth FOP Lodge 195. Despite a downpour of rain last year, 63 undaunted riders raised some $6,000-$7,000.
According to ride organizer Jeff Stewart, donations from local merchants and individuals for their auction and the dedication of riders continue to make this a significant event. Stewart said they are proud to put the names of the 28 major donors on the back of the T-shirts. Helping to organize all of the donations is Stewartâ€™s wife and fellow rider, Sherri.
This yearâ€™s ride will be this Saturday, starting at the Eagleâ€™s Lodge in Plymouth. Registration will be from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Fees for both riders and passengers is $10 and includes a T-shirt and a meal.
The approximately three hour ride will take the group to Rochester, Bass Lake and then back to Plymouth, ending at the Eagleâ€™s. Stops are scheduled in Rochester at Putts and in Bass Lake at Sportieâ€™s.
Stewart would like all of the riders and the pubic to join them for a meal and auction at the Eagles at 2 p.m. The donation at the door will be $10 for those not riding and includes both a T-shirt and the meal.
