SSEMC hits the road to find the cure for cancer
Placeholder Image
Snapping Shoals EMC is getting ready for its community motorcycle ride on Saturday, Sept. 26. The Ride for the Cure Cycle and Classic Car Poker Run will benefit the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. The ride is usually held in the spring, but the electric co-op moved the event to the fall with invitations to those with classic cars to come along for the ride.

The event registration fee is $25, which includes a commemorative T-shirt, and $10 per extra passenger. Passengers will also receive a T-shirt. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the SSEMC headquarters, located at 14750 Brown Bridge Road in Covington. The first-out time for the ride is 10 a.m. with a last-out time of 11 a.m. Everyone who registers will be given a card for the Poker Run. Riders will travel through Monticello, Madison and the Hub where they will make stops for card drawings, with Mellow Mushroom being final stop. The best poker hand at the end of the ride will win $100.
