The goal of the United Vets Motorcycle Club is to honor those who have served our country, both past and present, as well as to put a smile on the faces of children in our area. The UMVC is involved with several charitable organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and also hold their very own Teddy Bear Run each and every year. This year's run was postponed until now!

On Sunday, July 27th, the United Vets Motorcycle Club will be hosting a motorcycle ride through Aroostook county collecting and delivering teddy bears to area hospitals to bring comfort to hurting children.
All bikers are welcome. Riders will be meeting at the American Legion on Bangor Street in Houlton at 10 a.m. and kickstands will go up at 11 a.m. sharp.
The ride will stop at Houlton Regional Hospital, then make its way north to the Aroostook Medical Center in Presque Isle and make its final stop at the Sister Mary O'Donnell Homeless Shelter in Presque Isle.
