2020 ATR COMMITTEE BEGINS PLANS FOR RIDE

The 2020 American Tribute Ride Committee met in mid-March to begin the plans for the upcoming ride to be held on July 25th. As a committee we hope and pray that our country and our fellow citizens survive this pandemic of COVID-19. It has been the mission and will continue to be—
It is the mission of the American Tribute Ride to honor those that have served and those that continue to serve our country, unselfishly. We honor these individuals as ambassadors of goodwill exemplified by the passion, bravery, dedication and brotherhood to serve our country and its citizens. The American Tribute Ride is dedicated to supporting those programs that help our responders, whether they are Military, Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement and their families.
All the stops are in line and beginning the educational curve of what each stop’s objectives for the day of fun and safety. Each stop is charged with protecting our way to and from their station along with properly parking and releasing when the convoy departs.
The ride will start at the Juneau Fire station on the south edge of Juneau. Registration will start at 9:00 am and will stop at 11:00 am when we start the opening ceremony to dedicate our ride to those that have died in the line of duty in our state for the past 12 months.
After Juneau we have a very picturesque ride to Fall River, just west of Columbus. At Fall River we will have lunch and then it is onto Reeseville for hopefully a very interesting display of some very unique vehicles. Then it is off to Ashippun Fire Department. Ashippun will have on display their very unique colored apparatus, Chrome Yellow. The ride ends up in Waterloo, which is midway between Watertown and Sun Prairie. At Waterloo we will have our Memorial Service to pay honor and tribute to our “hometown heroes”; we hope to have the families and members of each department present for this program. Following the memorial service we will have our auction and an evening meal, which is separate fee for those that would like to “break bread” with us.
We are always willing to accept help planning the ride, helping the day of the ride or contributing to the ride. The 2019 ATR was able to raise enough funds to support the following entities:
Wreaths Across America at Central WI Cemetery Camp American Legion
Fischer House-Wisconsin at Woods VA Hospital Old Glory Honor Flights
Wisconsin State Firefighter & EMS Memorial Wisconsin Youth Burn Camp
Concerns Of Police Survivors-Wisconsin
Registration Forms and more information will be on our website: www.americantributeride.com. This 17th annual ride supporting those that have served will again plan to be one to remember according to Ron Naab the Chair.
