Pulaski Lodge #58 Support Our State Veterans Ride

For the fifth year in a row, Pulaski Lodge #58 has put on a very successful motorcycle ride to support our State's Veterans. This year was absolutely no exception and the success was emphasized by the attendance of many members of Vermont's Chapter of Widows Sons Riders Association. Widows Sons from Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Quebec were joined by riders from Combat Veterans Association, Harley Owners Group, Red Knights Group, Catamount Riders, Masonic Motorcycle Club International and more. 120 Motorcycles and their drivers delivered clothing goods and raised funds for the VA Hospital at White River Junction, Vermont. After a short visit to the Veterans' Memorial off I-89 at the Sharon rest area, an uplifting and respectful ceremony was observed by all at the Vermont Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Randolph. The Most Worshipful Grand Master Roger L. Crouse, his Deputy Grand Master and the Grand Senior Warden were in attendance.
The day was capped off with a picnic lunch at Wilkins' Harley Davidson in Barre, VT.

Pulaski Lodge #58 looks forward to having even more motorcycles and their riders join the day of fun, fellowship and fundraising next year.
