Ride for Recovery Set for Saturday 

The Bangor Area Recovery Network, also known as BARN, is hosting a day of fun this weekend. Saturday, August 17th, is the Ride for Recovery. There will be a motorcycle ride, BBQ, health far, blood drive, and a motorcycle rodeo. Money raised goes to the non-profit, BARN. ” We can absolutely offer a safe place for people to come, that’s alcohol and drug free, and give them the support they need in recovery from whatever, not just alcohol and drugs, but whatever kind of recovery support,” said Karen Bradford, chair of the Ride for Recovery. The event starts at 7:30 Saturday morning with a pancake breakfast and registration at 142 Center Street in Brewer. The ride starts at 9am.
