AUGUSTA - Maine's First Lady Ann LePage will show her unyielding support of Maine's military members and their families by participating in the Patriot Riders of Maine, Chapter 1's 7th Annual "Spring Ride For The Troops" today Sunday, April 27, 2014.
The motorcycle procession will leave the York American Legion Post 56 at 10:45 a.m. and travel to Bentley's Saloon on Route 1 in Arundel. Once the motorcyclists arrive, opening ceremonies will begin, and First Lady Ann LePage will offer her remarks as this year's guest speaker.
"It's a true pleasure for me to be a part of this event," Mrs. LePage said. "Military service men and women and their families have a special place in my heart, and I want to do anything and everything I can to show my support for them and my gratitude for their service."
The Patriot Riders of Maine Chapter 1 is a non-profit corporation whose mission is dedicated to providing local veterans and their families, as well as first responders and those in need in the community, with support and assistance for any need that presents itself. Last year's Spring Ride for the Troops raised over $15,000. The Patriot Riders of Maine Chapter 1 donated nearly $23,000 to the veterans, first responders and members of their community in 2013.
