The ninth annual Scotty’s Ride took place on Aug. 24 and raised over $6,400 for the Herkimer County Humane Society.
The ride was a 120-mile journey that began at the Ilion Elks Lodge and traveled to Boonville, Vernon and Bridgewater before returning to the Ilion Moose Club.
Ninety-five motorcycles with an additional 34 passengers participated in the ride that takes place annually in memory of Scott Fifield, who died in August 2004.
The ride took participants to the Boonville Hotel, Nothin Fancy Saloon in Vernon and Patty’s Pub in Bridgewater to accumulate their poker hands.
Once done, the riders ended their journey at the Ilion Moose Club for dinner and music provided for by JimiRoxx.
An additional 50 people attended the dinner.
The tenth annual Scotty’s Ride will take place on Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014. More information is available at www.scottysride.com and www.herkimerhumane.org.
