It's a busy day at Alton VFW Post 1308. The post is hosting a Family Fun Day from noon - 6pm, and the Ride for Wishes will end their 70-mile trek there at around 1:30. There will be candy, food and games all afternoon as part of the Fun Day.
Becky Willmore is the Volunteer Canteen Manager, and tells The Big Z it will be held outdoors on the parking lot.

You do not have to be a veteran to attend this event, which is open to the public. The ride is a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Organizer Norma Glazebrook tells The Big Z they have many items up for bid this year, but one in particular should draw much of the interest.

It will cost you $30 to register for the ride today. The ride starts at Ted's Motorcycle World at noon.
