Shriners Ride into Fall 

This weekend could have been one of the last weekends to enjoy Maine’s fall foliage at its finest.Members of the Anah Shrine Temple did just that, and raised some money for kids at the same time.The group has just formed a new motorcycle touring unit and Sunday was their first official fundraiser.16 bikers gathered at the Anah Temple in Bangor for a fall foliage ride.The group headed up to the River Driver’s restaurant in Millinocket for lunch.Then looped back around Lincoln on Route 2, back to Bangor.The cost was $30 for the ride. “This money, to the best of my knowledge, will go to the New England, like the Shriner’s Burn Hospital in Massachusetts.” Said Mark Babin on Sunday. Babin is the director of the motorcycle touring unit.THe unit raised $120 on Sunday.Babin says they hope to continue the fall foliage ride next year, but perhaps a little earlier, when the weather isn’t so chilly.
