The Hunt County Chapter of the VFW Motorcycle Group held a bike wash Saturday in the Cavender’s Boot City parking lot on Wesley Street. Funds gathered from the bike wash go to needy families during the upcoming holiday season when winter chills hit their hardest. Wayne New, Co-chair, tells HCN that over $3,000 was raised last year.
Members of this group are affiliated with the Higher Trails Church in Merit and the Patriot Guard. The Patriot Guard is often seen escorting the hearse carrying the remains of heroes on the final journey to eternal rest.
