‘Ride for Valor’ planned to honor local veterans

DACUSVILLE — On June 22, the Quilts of Valor chapter of Oconee and Pickens Counties will host an event to honor veterans from both counties.

On that day, three veterans from Pickens and three veterans from Oconee will be honored through Quilts of Valor to acknowledge and show respect for their sacrifice.

A “Ride for Valor” will take place at the Dacusville Community Center Pavilion, located at 2671 Earls Bridge Road in Easley, made up of motorcycles from all over the Upstate.

Riders should register at 9 a.m. and will leave at 10 a.m. to ride through Pickens and Oconee counties. Riders will return between 1-1:30 p.m. to the Dacusville Community Center, where the Quilts of Valor presentations will take place.

A $10 donation per motorcycle will be gladly accepted. All proceeds go to the promotion and advancement of Quilts of Valor for Pickens and Oconee Counties.
