JeepJunkies Ride

Due to the recent tragedy our community has faced, The Curry County Jeep Junkies would like to hold a memorial ride for the victims and their families. I will also be making decals to sell and give the profits to the families. They will hold a run on Saturday, September 9th at 10am. We will meet up at Raintree Thriftway parking lot, and ride around Clovis and end at the Library (or the area), around noon, we will then meet at Buffalo Wild Wings for a group lunch. Please, we need a lot of jeeps to participate in this. Consider joining us to give back to our community in its time of need.
