HENRY — The second annual Larry Klein Memory Ride and Benefit for Living Works will be Aug. 16 in Henry.

The memory ride will begin at 11 a.m., with sign-up and breakfast beginning at 9 a.m. at River Valley Bowl in Henry.

The cost is $15 per participant, which includes a meal ticket. All vehicles are welcome. The first stop will be Kaddywampus Sports Grill in Granville, followed by Ye Olde Underground Inn in Princeton, Cerno’s Bar and Grill in Kewanee, Reimer’s Harley Davidson in Kewanee, Kelly’s Place in Tiskilwa and Castaways in Chillicothe.

This benefit will be held “rain or shine” and is open to the public. A meal will be served beginning at 5 p.m. with the exact menu to be determined. T-shirts are available on a pre-order, pre-pay basis for $15. Rounding out the event will be a DJ, door prizes, a 50/50 drawing and a huge raffle with a little something for everyone. Generous donations are coming in from friends, family and area businesses. Businesses interested in contributing to the event should contact Tracy Wright at 309-363-8811.
