Something About the Hot Dogs in Wings Mills

We had a great ride last Sunday in Vassalboro, and a delightful post-ride gathering at the ride leaders' afterwards.  Many thanks from us all to Laura and David Lipman!  This Sunday we will start off the month of June with another club favorite: Ken's Hot Dog Ride!  We'll meet in tiny locale of Wings Mills in Mount Vernon (directions below) for a very scenic ride and a Hot Dog cookout later.  Ken would appreciate if you email him at klouis17@hotmail.com so he can get an approximate headcount.  Hope you can join us!
