Saturday’s Q-106.5 Egg Ride Will Feature Eggs, Hay, and Unicorns
The Q-106.5 Pine Tree Camp Egg Ride will look a little different this year, but it will definitely be fun, and will help send children and adults with disabilities to camp.
We've been asked the same question a lot this year - 'What are you going to do for the egg ride with no snow?' The answer is simple. Improvise. We've had to do this a few times over the 30+ years of the annual ride, and usually we've sat on snowmobiles, that were secured to trailers.
But this year, we decided to have a little more fun, despite the lack of snow. So, we'll be sitting on hay bales, placed on a trailer. Call it the 'Q-106.5 Egg 'n Hay Ride.' So, what about the unicorns? Well, apparently, it's a 'thing' at the Pine Tree Camp. They have several unicorn suits....and Camp Counselor Dawn is bringing some to the ride. So, I've agreed to wear one, in addition to the eggs. I mean, why not? I've never been a unicorn before, let alone an egg-wearing unicorn.
Our procession from the Hungry Hollows 76ers Snowmobile Club in Levant, to the Penobscot Snowmobile Club in Hermon, and then to Dysart's Truck Stop in Hermon will be led and followed by Maine Game Wardens. And there's a lot of food involved, as always. The Hungry Hollows is serving up breakfast, by donation, to benefit the Pine Tree Camp. At the Penobscot Snowmobile Club, they'll have dough boys, and other treats. And, of course, Dysart's will have some lunch entrees specifically to benefit the camp. In addition, there will be a silent auction, that will travel from the Hungry Hollows to the Penobscot Snowmobile Club.
You can make sure our suits are bursting with eggs by donating today. This is crunch time (pun intended) to take donations because the ride is tomorrow. To increase our egg total, and help even more children and adults with disabilities go to camp, call (207) 991-9500 to make a pledge, donate online using your credit or debit card, or join us this afternoon at Danforth's Down Home Supermarket in Hermon between 3 and 7.
