Remember Rally planned for Sept. 7
LUVERNE -- The 11th annual Remember Rally to honor military and first responders is planned Sept. 7 in Luverne.
Registration begins at 11 a.m. at the Howling Dog Saloon, with the ride leaving at 12:30 p.m. The fire department will escort rally participants down U.S. 71 and Main Street out of Luverne.
"We started our non-profit organization after 9-11 and have done years of research on the various chemicals and toxins that military and first responders are exposed to," said organizer Diane Sherwood. "Although our ultimate goal is to open a specialized health clinic, we realize that it will take major funding. Until we get to that point, we want to help people in other ways."
This year, proceeds from the rally will support three separate national veterans organizations, Project Sanctuary, BurnPits 360 and Troops Direct.
The first stop for the rally is Big Orv's in Adrian. A barbecue meal will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Howling Dog.
