On Saturday October 2, the first Bikes, Blues and BBQ event was held at and sponsored by members of the South Lake Moose Lodge 1615 along with its Auxiliary and Rider group to help support the Bradley Summersill Foundation. The Foundation was started as a benefit fundraiser to help Bubba, Peggy and the Summersill family with the purchase of a headstone for their son Bradley who was killed by a drunk driver on January 1, 2010. Extra money was raised so now the family has continued to help provide graveside markers for families of young people who are killed under the age of 24 and are not able to afford that expense.
The South Lake Moose would like to thank The Jeff Howell Blues Band and the Kim Hartman Band for donating their talents for the event. Special thanks go to Zeisloft Trucking, Lake Construction, Stormy Hill Harley Davidson, Dorsey Air, Rics Electric and Teddy Martin Trucking for their sponsorships. The South Lake Moose Lodge looks forward to hosting the 7th Annual Ride for the Stone to be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 to help the Summersill family continue in their efforts to help other families in need.
