The award was for the distinction of celebrating 50 years of existence in the border communities and all the volunteer efforts of the many members throughout the years. The club was honored to have an original member on hand, Mr. Adrian Thibeault, to accept that award. Adrian is still active with the club some 50 years later and supports all our efforts. Many thanks to all the individuals throughout the years who have helped keep this tradition alive. The next planned event is the co- ed softball tourney Sept. 2–4 at the Canaan fields. Anyone who enjoys riding our trails in the winter is welcome to help with this event as it has truly grown to be one of the largest in New England. A tremendous amount of work goes into it and we need all the volunteers we can get. It is our largest fundraiser of the year, so your volunteerism is important. Later in the fall we will be sponsoring a Fall Foliage ATV poker run throughout the border communities. It has also become very popular and a great way to help support the local snowmobile club efforts. I guess that about sums up our summer. Hope to see you in the area sometime soon. Thanks! The Canaan Border Riders are 50 years old and still thriving!
