Veterans Ride for Honor raises $3,000
The second annual Karen Boback Veterans Ride for Honor, held on May 27, raised $3,000 to support local veterans’ organizations.
This year the committee chose to divide the proceeds among four groups: First Lt. Michael J. Cleary Memorial Fund to benefit veterans, Hunts for Healing and Patriot’s Cove, which both provide outdoor activities for veterans, and St. Hedwig Church for their programs for veterans. On July 10, checks were presented to the recipients at the Dallas American Legion. The event was sponsored by the Dallas American Legion, Post 672, Dallas. The Bike Run was sponsored by the American Legion Riders from Post 672, Dallas, and Post 495, Shickshinny. Riders made donations of $15 each and passengers donated $10. The Rotary Club of Dallas donated the funds to purchase the event patch.
