The 2nd Brigade Motor Cycle Club and APS are holding Pets and Vets Together, a motorcycle Run on Saturday October 6 at the VFW Fairgrounds, 692 County Home Road, Yanceyville, NC.
A highlight of this event will be the presentation of a dog to a deserving veteran. Details are being worked on, but we know there will be food and drinks, some competitions, and a raffle.
Rain date will be the following Saturday.
How Marble Run works: Participants on motorcycles or in cars go to 5 different stops on a route to draw marbles from a bag. Each color marble is worth a certain number of points which will be revealed at the end of the Run. Cash prizes for most points $200, for least points (the “feel sorry for you award”) $100, for most patriotic bike $25 most patriotic rider $25, and a “mystery prize” of $25.
Supporters who do not wish to ride can join us mid-day for entertainment, “cornhole” bean bag toss, food, animal demonstrations, 50/50 drawing, door prizes, kid games, silent auction, & face painting.
Registration 10 am, 1st ride 11:30am. $25/bike $10/rider, including lunch and T-shirt. To come for lunch only, $5.
100% of all proceeds to benefit animals in the Caswell County shelter.
A deserving veteran will receive a trained dog, RJ, a beautiful, friendly Yellow Labrador.
RJ will be neutered and have his shots, ready to go home, and will have basic obedience training. RJ will come with a “starter kit” of food and other supplies. The unconditional love animals give may be a blessing to a veteran who faces the challenges associated with returning home from service. If you know a deserving veteran to welcome RJ into his or her home, please nominate this veteran to APS by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, explaining why your vet is deserving. The VFW will assist in choosing the recipient.
