The fourth annual Grey Mare Society Ride the Trail to a Cure was, September 26, 2009.? It started out as an overcast morning and a light rain began as?92 riders hit the trail.? 90 of them completed the ride and didn't let a little rain dampen their spirits.? They donned slickers and enjoyed the company and wide trails through the beautiful Michaux forest.? After their return, they?welcomed a delicious?hot lunch prepared by Linda Geesaman and crew.? Bidding was lively on the silent auction items?donated by local businesses.?
