Ride for Remembrance

You may notice a larger than usual number of motorcycles out on the highways this weekend. That's because the second annual Ride for Remembrance to raise money for MoDOT's fallen workers memorial is being held Saturday, June 12 in Jefferson City. Hundreds of riders from across the state are expected to descend on the Jaycee's Fairgrounds to honor MoDOT workers killed in the line of duty. A memorial ceremony will be held at 1 p.m.

The day is also meant to bring families and friends together for a day of fun, food and camaraderie. Attractions include a motorcycle, car and truck show, face painting, a bounce house, kettle corn, barbecue and much more. All are welcome to attend the event, which runs from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, please visit
