Annual Red Cross Turkey Run
Broad Street was temporarily turned into a motorcycle parking lot as the Renegade Pigs Motorcycle Club hosted their annual turkey run for the Red Cross.
The motorcade pulled up in front of the Red Cross building, led by a semi laden with frozen turkeys. A bucket-brigade line of leather jackets and chaps was quickly formed in the frigid wind to pass the frigid birds from the semi to awaiting Red Cross delivery vehicles.
The gathered riders were in high spirits, though a bit bone-chilled, and the only sign of dismay was the moan that issued from the crowd any time a slippery bird tumbled to the ground.
The Red Cross will distribute the birds to families in need over the upcoming holidays.
