The fun run ends at Raceway Bar and Grill, 49237 W. Papago Rd., with the last bike in at 5 p.m. Autos are also welcome.
The event will feature a poker hand (high hand=$100; low hand=$50), a 50/50 raffle, door prizes and a day of fun and relaxation for all.

Maricopa’s VFW and American Legion posts sponsor Bailey Boxes; its founder, Herb Bailey, is a disabled veteran.
Bailey Boxes are sent every few weeks to troops serving all over the world. Items in the boxes provide a touch of home for the service men and women. They include: Chap Stick, gum, sun block, granola bars, paperback books, Gatorade, beef jerky, baby wipes, socks, canned fruit, letters and photos, foot powder, nail clippers and store bought cookies, to name a few items. Donations are collected at the Maricopa Chamber of Commerce office, 44870 W. Hathaway Rd.
