The 4th annual PIGs poker run will take place Saturday June 1st. Each year their bike run raises money for the Vets, and in years past has been able to raise money to buy a new van to take Vets to their check ups or other clinical visits that they might not otherwise make it to.

This year the route is a little different. Talking to Jim this year, he explains that because of the construction on Tower Ave they will begin at the Bong Heritage Center. Resistration begins at 10 am and the run will start at noon. The cost is $10 for single bikes and $15 for couples.

If you would like to visit the Bong Heritage Center that morning they are opening for free for this run, but welcome any donations if you can afford it. The honor guard will send off the ride again this year.

There will be free water, pop, & coffee for the start of the ride.
