Fifty-some Harley riders took off from the P-A club last Sunday morning on their annual mission around the Island to collect toys for the Red Stocking Fund. First stop was Dippin’ Donuts in Oak Bluffs, then Sharky’s in Edgartown to refuel, and finally to Conroy Apothecary in West Tisbury.

Along with a Jeep full of toys, the bikers collected more than $16,000 for the annual drive that provides seasonal gifts and meals for Island families who are struggling to make ends meet.

Back at the P-A club, the riders enjoyed a lunch of chowder, chicken wings, salad, and brownies, prepared by Wes and Linda Wood and Barbara Hoffmann.
