ORV Color Ride held to thank veterans

ISHPEMING, Mich. (WLUC) - On Saturday, the Ishpeming VFW Post 4573 hosted an ORV Color Ride to thank veterans for their service.

Veterans from the D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans went along on the ride, as well as many other local veterans.

After the ride, the veterans, along with State Rep. Sara Cambensy (D-Marquette) and volunteers from the Marquette County Democratic Party gathered at the post for a luncheon.
Cambensy said the ride is a unique and fun way to honor veterans.

"This was something we could do to kind of take them out, get them out on trails that they might not have the opportunity to take advantage of, and to have different generations of veterans connect with each other," Cambensy said.

Cambensy added that she hopes the Color Ride will bring in more people for the years to come. If you are interested in helping with next year’s ride, contact the Ishpeming VFW at 906-486-4856.
