Appearing will be myself and Chris Ragusa. He is the brother of Mike Ragusa for whom the ride is named after.
First the web page is under the Mike Ragusa Agent Orange Awareness Memorial Ride. Details are as follows: the Ride is on September 22. Check in time is 9-11 am at the North Pekin AMVETS Post 169 on Route 29. The ride fee is $25.00 for the driver and $5.00 for the passenger. This includes a meal at the end of the ride. Tee shirts with the logo on the front, the sleeve and the sponsors names on the back are available for $10 to $15 depending on the size. Lots of donated items available in the raffle with the Grand Prize being dinner for two at Boyds Steakhouse and a night at the Paradise Hotel. Estimated value $250.00. All proceeds from the ride will be used to help families of victims stricken with Agent Orange poisoning. Last year several scholarships were awarded to grandchildren of Vietnam Veterans that were exposed to Agent Orange. Not only are motorcycles invited to participate but all forms of transportation are welcome. For details call Bob Dant 309-231-0118.
