Join local veterans and their families for a fun filled day at Western Gateway Park. The event begins with an organized motorcycle ride through the Sierra: from Penn Valley to Downieville and over the Yuba Summit  to Hwy 89 and down Old Highway 40.

Riders will return to the park by 1:00pm and the BBQ, Music , Raffle and Silent Auction will begin and go until 4:00pm. 

Cost is $20 for motorcycle riders and includes BBQ and an event pin. BBQ lunch only is $10 and kids under 12 are free. Register online at: www.welcomehomevets.org

This event is a fundraiser and is meant to honor our veterans and their families with all proceeds going to the non-profit Welcome Home Vets of Grass Valley. Color guard and honor guard will be present. CalStar air ambulance memberships for sale, too! 

The fall weather is perfect for a fantastic ride through the sierras and relax with friends later at the park. For more information call 272-3300.
