POW-MIA ride stopping in Sublimity

The City of Sublimity invites residents to turn out to support captured and missing veterans June 24 as the Oregon Veterans Motorcycle Association passes through for their annual POW-MIA Memorial Ride.

The bikers have made Sublimity a mid-way stop on previous rides, but this is the first year the city is officially helping sponsor the event, including a free lunch for riders at the Church Park War Memorial.

Sublimity City Council Member Tass Morrison said supporting the event was an easy decision for city officials, as many community members have connections to veterans who were prisoners or war or are missing in action, even dating back to WWII.

“We are just connected with our military and our veterans at a personal level,” said Morrison. Adding residents are invited to line the streets and welcome riders. Free American flags are available at City Hall. The lineup will begin at 10:45 a.m. along Center Street.

An estimated 120 riders will be taking part in this year’s event. Proceeds from the ride support efforts to assist veterans, their families and their communities.
