Treaty City Motorcycle Club and State of the Heart Care joined forces for a hospice benefit run on July 22 to raise funds for veteran care for State of the Heart patients. Regardless of the sticky weather and high chances of rain, 115 riders showed up and rode through Winchester, Greenville, Maria Stein, and North Star to support the cause. Throughout the day, vendors set up booths for a flea market on TCMC’s property and concessions were served inside the clubhouse. After the riders returned, an after party began with Renegade rocking out the stage and pulled pork dinners being served all night.
A heartfelt thanks goes out to the American Legion who performed the flag ceremony at the beginning of the event and for John Strawser who paid special tribute to our veterans in a ceremony. The event hosted 17 veterans who came out to ride, including an active duty officer who traveled from Virginia to support our veterans and subsequently won the trophy for farthest traveled. The trophy for the oldest rider was awarded to Mr. Denver Harter, 84.
