September 11th — Memorial Ceremony
On September 11th, we are asking bikers to join us in the memorial ceremony honoring both 9/11 and fallen soldiers' families. The ride will start at King's Pointe in Storm Lake around 2:00 p.m. We will then head to St. Mary's Catholic Gym for the ceremony. We are looking for as many bikers with flags to ride ahead to escort fallen soldiers' families. Spencer Legion Riders will also join us to help honor the families.
