PLAISTOW - Lyme disease can be devastating and is caused by the bite of a tick that carries this disease. Antibiotics after a bite can help but oftentimes, people do not remember being bitten. Chronic long-term Lyme is a problem for thousands of Americans.
Help take a bite out of Lyme Disease on Sun., June 2, by adding your wheels to those of some 300 motorcyclists expected to attend the upcoming Fourth Annual Poker Run, sponsored by the Plaistow Lions Club.
The ride’s registration begins at 9:00 a.m., and individuals, or groups, may depart on the self-guided run at their leisure, starting as early as 9:00 a.m., or as late as 11:00 a.m., from the American Legion’s Carl G. Davis Post 34, 176 Main Street in Plaistow. The donation is $15.00 for the rider or $25.00 with a passenger. Riders helping raise funds for Lyme research will complete the run back at the American Legion, after rolling through some 80 scenic miles.
Food, Live music, 50/50, and raffle prizes will be abundant at the finish. Poker cards drawn at stops along the way will win prizes, including one for the Best and Worst poker hands. Early birds arriving to the event are invited to enjoy a breakfast buffet available at 8 a.m., at a cost of just $5.00 per person put on by the America Legion.
If you are interested in attending, you can contact Ed Thurston at 603.479.2439 or Jaimie Bezanson at 603.770.8948. Details can also be found on Facebook at “PlaistowNHLions” or www.plaistow.nhlions.org.
