The Tour-de-Forest ATV ride was held May 18th and 19th and once again was huge success. It rained a little Saturday and it was just enough to hold the dust down for a beautiful weekend for our event. We had a total of 1274 machines over the entire weekend with 716  passengers. We would like to take this time to thank all of the organizations involved for their hard work and dedication over the weekend and the days leading up to the event. This event not only benefits our fire company but also a number of  volunteer organizations. We also like to thank our great community for their support and patience for our event. We especially would like to thank all of the participants for attending and making our fundraiser such a huge success. We hope you enjoyed yourselves!! Thanks again and we hope to see you all in the fall.
