One of the goals for this year’s American Tribute Ride is pay tribute to area veterans. This will include having at least one van to transport veterans that are not able to be on a motorcycle through the route the day of the ATR. Secondly, the committee has created an “Adopt a Vet” program to give our veterans that are willing to attend the closing ceremony in Coloma with a meal. For $10.00 participants will allow to have a veteran along our route be able to have an evening meal following the Memorial Service. We hope many of our participants will donate towards this honorable tribute to those that have served our country in the military
In addition to the veterans, we will be dedicating our fund raising day to honor Officer Matthew J. Rittner and Officer Michael John Michalski of the Milwaukee Police Department along with Captain Corey Barr of the Sun Prairie Fire Department and Captain Chris Truman of the Lake Mills Fire Department.
The veterans groups along with the Coloma Fire Department are working with our Memorial Service Committee to provide a special meaningful ceremony to honor our hometown heroes the made the Ultimate Sacrifice.
We continue to look for sponsors of the ride to help offset the cost of operations [i.e. porta-potties, food, printing, etc.] If you or if you know of a company that would be like to be a sponsor have them contact Ron Naab, Chair of the American Tribute Ride [262/629-9749].
We will have our registration forms on-line at www.americantributeride.com. Our donation request has remained the same with $25.00 for a single bike and $35.00 for a two-up cycle. We do allow 4-wheelers to also be involved.
