To the Editor:
On Sunday, September 29, 2013 the Newtown Hook and Ladder Co. #1 hosted the Fourth Annual Firehouse Ride. This ride was created in an effort to raise funds for the new construction of a much needed firehouse. We would like thank all the sponsors, riders, donors, neighboring fire companies, and friends who gathered together to support this cause.
With over 125 registered motorcycles, and a crowd of nearly 300 people, the ride was a huge success, doubling the funds raised in the past.

Kathy Holick tucked a small green and white Sandy Hook rubber duck into her leather jacket. She soon hopped onto her husband Steve’s motorcycle as the two joined the fourth annual Firehouse Ride to support the Newtown Hook and Ladder Co. #1 in its effort to build a new firehouse.
This year’s event, which drew more than 100 motorcycles, and a larger than usual crowd for the pig roast and party that followed, was called The Ride To Remember, also benefiting the Sandy Hook Family Healing Fund.
