Oct. 2 motorcycle ride to benefit Haywood school

Registration for Central Haywood High School’s eighth Annual Dawgs on Hawgs Motorcycle Ride fundraiser will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 2 at Ghost Town Harley Davidson on the Waynesville Bypass.

This event raises much-needed school funds to provide students with classroom supplies, rewards, incentives and scholarships for seniors pursuing higher education after graduation.

Riders will travel from Ghost Town Harley through Waynesville, across Waynesville Mountain to Edwards Cove Road. Riders will go near Camp Daniel Boone and back through Canton, Clyde then to Maggie Valley; the ride will be escorted by law enforcement officers.

Wheels Thru Time, a favorite spot with motorcyclists, will host the ceremony time of fellowship, snacks and door prize give-a-ways. Riders have an opportunity to also see the Wheels Thru Time Museum.

$15 per rider or $25 per couple. Riders will have the choice to purchase orange T-shirts made by Patti Boos of Canton and raffle tickets for the cash drawing following the ride.

Supporters may send donations or prizes to 3215 Broad Street, Clyde, N.C., 28721, or feel free to drop by personally.

Contact Donna Parris or principal Jeff Haney at 828.627.9944.
