Earlier this week the Muskoka Thunder Motorcycle Riders received the Hope Float Award for the best float in the Gravenhurst Santa Claus Parade.

They received their award Monday at Stevenson Plumbing – who sponsored the award and judged the event.

On hand were Scott Stevenson, Debbie Wood, float coordinator Roberta Appleton, Blake Stevenson, club president Vic Wood, Tracy Barkshire, Dave Pegg and Chris Kenneth. Mandy McBride, Don Chapman, Sue Linn, Kevin Carpenter and Beth Kennett were unable to attend.

The Motorcycle Club has 150 members, and they take pride in their fundraising efforts for children and veterans. This year they’ll be refereeing, keeping score and raising funds for the Special Olympics.
