We lost a longtime friend and fellow motorcyclist ÔÇ£Vermont SteveÔÇØ Wrathall, at the too early age of 52. Steve leaves his wife, Joy Powell and three young children Molly 8, Lucas 4 and Seth 2.

Steve rode many a mile with his ÔÇ£JoiseyÔÇØ friends. When you get over the shock of losing a friend your next thoughts are how you can help his family. In the true Vermont spirit - friends of Steve have organized a weekend in Vermont event, http://www.bmwmcnj.com/Uploads/StevesRatholeRun.pdf

Jack Aaron, and his wife, Debbie Theriault are spearheading the Vermont end while the BMW Motorcycle Club of North Jersey is helping in the lower 48. If you can make it great - if not any donations sent in would be appreciated. 100% will go to the family. If you can make it RSVP if possible ( stonehse@sover.net ) If you are not a camper two great places, among many, to stay are The Red Mill in Wilmington 802 464-3700 or The Grey Ghost in West Dover 802- 464-2474.

Any donations appreciated, please make out to SteveÔÇÖs wife Joy Powell and send to Jack Aaron, PO Box 144, Jacksonville Vt. 05342
