9th Annual Scotty's Ride a day for remembrance, charity


ILION, N.Y. (WKTV) - The 9th Annual Scotty's Ride took motorcyclists on a trip around Ilion, Saturday.

The Ride began at the Elks Club and finished at the Moose Club where bikers were greeted to a big celebration.

Motorcyclists from around the Mohawk Valley gathered for this event, to honor Scott Fifield, who was killed in a motorcycle accident in August 2004.

Scotty's Ride acts as a fundraising event for the Herkimer County Humane Society, as those who knew Scott knew the importance animals held in his life.

In addition to the proceeds from the ride itself, a large raffle was held to win various prizes donated throughout the community.

This event is held to preserve the memory of Scott, while helping the Herkimer County Humane Society keep animals safe.
