Ride for the Fallen at the Flesherton Fling 2017
Dufferin Grey ATV Club (DGATV) is proud to have been part of the first annual Ride for the Fallen hosted by the Royal Canadian Legion Flesherton-Markdale Branch 333.
This fundraising poker gave riders a great afternoon on the trails and concluded with the Kinsmen Rib Fest dinner and dance.
Dufferin Grey ATV Club Directors Ruth Ann Turnbull and Jamie Thurman present a cheque to Beavercrest Community School for use by the breakfast club.
Money raised at our Saturday, June 24, 2017 ride was $310, which was matched by DGATV for a total of $620.
The school was very appreciative and told us that our riders “ROCK”.
We already knew that!
