Highways, Hogs and Hillbillies hit the road...

The rumble of motorcycles of all makes, shapes and sizes could be heard round the Butler Square this morning as the 5th Annual Highway Hogs and Hillbillies ride got underway promptly at 10:00 a.m. This yearly event benefits the 27th Circuit Adult Recovery Court. ARC is an intensive 18 to 24 month program that returns drug offenders back to society as taxpaying citizens. Currently Bates County 6 persons participating.

Approximately 25 bikes left from the Butler Square and representatives from the ARC said more riders were to join the group in Clinton. This years planned 143 mile course took the riders on a scenic route through Bates, Henry and St. Clair Counties. Stops were planned along the way and the group enjoyed lunch at Sugarfoot Barbeque in Osceola.

The group arrived back in Butler late this afternoon where drawings were held for prizes.
