Staab Hosts Ride to Honor Vets
About 40 motorcyclists took a ride to honor our veterans Sunday. The Staab Funeral Home hosted the inaugural Ride with Honor.
The ride took motorcyclists to the cemeteries at Oak Ridge and Camp Butler. They also visited the Spaulding and New Berlin veterans' memorials.
The ride was put together after the funeral home purchased a hearse that can be pulled by a motorcycle.
"We finally put it into service about a few weeks back, and we're excited about using it for special purposes, for taking people to a cemetery or church of their choice for their services," Staab president P.J. Staab said.
The funeral home plans to run the motorcycle ride every year.
The 40 motorcyclists were from ABATE and the Patriot Guard Riders.
There was an after-party in Springfield following the ride.
