About the Event

*2021 Anniversary Ride*

Although this is a free event, donations will be taken up per trailer on May 27th & 28th to assist with event costs - bathroom rentals, light rentals, and other expenses associated with the event. Dawn Williams will have a donation tent at the entrance of camp and we are asking everyone to give what they can afford. Every donation makes a difference, no matter how big or small.
