Williams Lake Harley owners deliver Christmas in May

Members of the Williams Lake Harley Owner's Group Chapter delivered a care package to a family in need Wednesday evening.

Thanks to the generosity of the Williams Lake HOG Chapter a needy family in the city received a care package Wednesday evening.

Each year the chapter collects dues from its 39 members and holds 50/50 draws to raise funds for charity.

They give to the Salvation Army every Christmas, but decided this year they’d like to do something closer to the summer because some families are in need throughout the year.

When approached, one of the local elementary schools gave the chapter the name of a single mother with three children that could use some help.

On Wednesday afternoon, members went shopping and spent $400.

One of the members also donated a home-grown turkey.

Before departing from the Chevron Station on Oliver Street to deliver the care package Wednesday evening, the group said they had decided to forego riding motorcycles for the delivery because of the rain.

The one exception was Lynn Bonner who drove in from Riske Creek, unaware of the change of plans. The group decided he would lead the way.

HOG is a world-wide organization that originated in 1983. The chapter formed in Williams Lake in 2000.
