Ride the River was a huge success once again. Everyone should be very proud of the result of this year’s ride. The Ride the River 2014 page has been updated to include the sponsor list. Also, a photo album has been added that documents the ride.
President John Evans took some time from his Alaskan vacation to leave us with this message regarding the success of Ride the River 2014.
I would like to thank Dave Wehrman for picking up the pizzas from Tony’s Pizza on Friday night. Thank you to Steve Klecke owner of Tony’s for the pizzas. Thank you to Bill Hengl and Carol Churilla for picking up the donuts, fruit and snacks. Thank you to Pete Schafer and the
Kankakee County Fairgrounds board for allowing us to use the Fairgrounds as a starting and ending point. Thank you to the 7 FFA officers from the River Valley FFA chapter that spent the
whole day with us! Thanks also to the 2 girls from the Herscher FFA group the helped at noon. Their help was most appreciated and needed. Thanks to Stan and Janeen Dietz who sponsored the water and 380 lb of ice. Thank you to Mark Chapman for the 144 cookies he sponsored. Thank you notes have been sent to all the sponsors. Please note the list of 2014 Ride the River sponsors in the September Greensheet and support those and say thanks when you see them for their continued support.
