Memorial Run slated for August 18
The 17th Annual Minneota Memorial Run, promoting motorcycle safety awareness, has been set for Saturday, August 18.
Friends and family members of road and highway accident victims in the Southwest Minnesota area who want to keep their memories alive established this event.
This event is not only for motorcycles, but all vehicles.
