Gas up those motorcycles and head down to the Olive Hill City Park for the Eastern Kentucky Holy Rollers membership drive Sept. 19.

President Andy Bond said the event is to encourage more members and inform the community of what the group is all about.

The drive will begin at 2 p.m. and continue until 7 at the small shelter house, with refreshments provided. Bond said he invites all Christian bikers to stop by for an afternoon of fellowship.

As a non-profit group, the Holy Rollers have raised nearly $12,000 in cash and toys over the past year for children and families in Carter County.

“We are hoping to get a lot more members,” he commented. “This year’s toy drive has already started and everyone’s help will be appreciated. We also would like for local churches to take part in the drive with us. We will take new toys as well as used toys.”

This past year, the Holy Rollers provided toys to the children of 243 inmates at the Carter County Detention Center. “We do the toy drives in honor of the Gerrad Maggard Memorial Children’s Charity,” he added. “This past year, we also gave 640 local families toys for their children and some of the kids got two toys. We just want people to know what we do and how we work in this community. I hope a lot of people will come by for the membership drive and want to be a part of the Holy Rollers.”
