THE HIGHGROUND RIDE TO REMEMBER
August 17 @ 10:00 am - August 18 @ 11:00 am CDT$25.00
The Highground Veterans Memorial Ride to Remember at Neillsville WI. Let’s do an overnight !! (optional of course) Check back for probable options on riding together to the Neillsville American Legion. Linda and Jo will likely lead one from the south and Lisa may lead one from the north.
There is a lot going on in Neillsville at the American Legion and the Highground on Saturday so rather than having to leave before the festivities are over, let’s spend the night at the Super 8. We can stay for the band (confirmation pending) or we can go back to the motel for a swim and/or camaraderie. It will be a blast. Chapter member Lisa Herman has reserved a block of 5 rooms (2 people, 2 queen beds: $109 + tax; $10 each additional person) until July 16th to assure they are available for us on this busy weekend. (The Super 8 is 1 of the only 2 motels in the small town of Neillsville, and the only one with a pool).
Call 715 629 9764 before the July 16th deadline and tell them you want to reserve one of the Women on the Edge rooms for Saturday August 17th. But do it today so you won’t forget! Only 3 rooms left already since Lisa and I have both reserved ours. Your card won’t be charged until check out and you can cancel up to 24 hours in advance. (Reserve by calling the # listed; do not do it online)
The tentative schedule for the event is as follows:
10am – 3pm – Registration, Guided Rides, Vendors, and Raffles at the Neillsville American Legion, 6 Boon Blvd, Neillsville (music pending – possibly a DJ). Tours available at The Highground during these hours (details TBD)
3pm – All Riders proceed on a guided parade route thru Neillsville and out to the Highground for a Welcome and Short Ceremony on the Plaza. Return to Legion for Meal & Drawing of the Raffle Prize Winners.
$25 per person Registration – includes guided rides, path or rocker, and lunch as well as ceremony
(Please note that this parade is a very moving experience, and riding into the Memorial Park while they ring the bell for all the Wisconsin veterans that have paid the ultimate price, you will be brought to tears. Happens to me every year ).
