A beautiful, sun-filled day helped make the 3rd Annual Jenkins Care Community Bike Show and Benefit Poker Run an enjoyable outing this past Saturday, June 10.

A total of 40 motorcycles, 17 of them with passengers, participated in the event which once again raised money for the construction of a new walkway for residents at Jenkins Care Community in Wellston. Sandy Borden, the Community Outreach Coordinator for Jenkins Care Community, organized the event and noted this year's event might reach the total fund level needed to construct the walkway. The Apple City Motorcycle Club helped organize and conduct the actual ride.

The participants began and ended the four-hour ride at noon at the Jenkins Care Community parking lot and were initially led by units from the Wellston Police Department. The scenic route took the motorcycles northbound on State Route 93 through McArthur, then on to State Route 56 and a tour of the Lake Hope State Park area. The route then turned back south through Zaleski and onto U.S. Route 50, then westward through McArthur and on to the Chillicothe area. The route then turned back toward Jackson County on old U.S. Route 35 to Richmond Dale, then back onto the double-lane U.S. Route 35 to State Route 93, then back through Coalton and back to Jenkins Care Community. The McArthur Police Department assisted with traffic control in McArthur.

The Jenkins Care Community residents participated in actual judging prior to the start of the ride and the following winners were announced: Best of Show, Wayne Vickers; Residents' Choice, Jackie Gussler; and People's Choice, Dan Bowling.

The ride around Southeastern Ohio was to have ended at approximately 4 p.m. with the participants returning to Jenkins Care Community for a provided meal inside the air-conditioned facility. Participants also drew cards for their Poker hand with the holder of the best hand winning $100.

There was also a Chinese auction and a split-the-pot raffle.
