A local motorcycle club has made Christmas a little brighter for some area families.  The 618 Riding Club, which is a member of the Southern Illinois Coalition of Cyclists, has been delivering bicycles and other toys to families in the Riverbend this week.  Club President Jeff Mcguiggan tells The Big Z after the families are nominated, the club determines the need.

While many of the gifts are paid for out of their own pockets, Mcguiggan says there was also a 50 / 50 raffle that raised about $1000, and some local stores also donated toys.
