Sponsored by:

Jamestown, CA — Saturday Vietnam Veterans Post #391 will host the Sgt. Bobby Rapp Memorial Scholarship Motorcycle Run.

Spokesperson Rick Clement says rider registration will get underway at 9am at the Harley Davidson store. The ride will start at 10:30 ending at noon. Clement adds that a special presentation will be made to Ted and Jennifer Rapp and their son Patrick.

The free “open to the public” event will feature hot dogs and music from Chains Required and Hills Bros. Band. The festivities will close at 4pm.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the scholarship funds at Tuolumne County high schools. Donations can also be mailed to Vietnam Veterans Post #391, P.O. Box 5391, Sonora, CA 95370.

The 22 year old Sonora High graduate surrendered his life to a suicide bomber March 3 of a year ago while guarding a government building in the Subari District of Afghanistan.
