We are honored to announce our guest speaker is Maj. Gen. William Reddel, the adjutant general of the New Hampshire National Guard.

Rolling Thunder NH1 will be assisting with the lineup at Lowe’s. Anyone riding should plan on being at Lowe's, 1407 Lake Shore Road [formerly K-Mart Plaza] in Gilford. Plan on being there by *6:00pm ~ lineup is at 6:00pm and we will be leaving the parking lot by 6:15pm with a state trooper escort down route 3 to “The Rock” Hesky Park. We need to arrive at Hesky Park and be prepared for the start of the vigil at 7:00pm.

The New Hampshire Army National Guard will be joining us in support of the Northeast POW/MIA Network Freedom Ride. The National Guard Humvee will be the last vehicle in the ride following the parade of bikes to Meredith, NH.

* If you are riding with a group we ask that you arrive with the group and fall into the line up ~ we will not allow bumping in the line for safety reasons.

*No vehicles other than the humvee will be allowed to be in with the motorcycles.
