    Hi everyone, I am heading up a fundraiser for SPC Matthew Pollini who was killed while we were deployed to Iraq with the 77duece, if anyone is interested in the run, feel free to show up and if there are any questions feel free to PM me... thanks guys and gals!



    This run is in honor of SPC Matthew Pollini, a 21 year old
    Rockland resident, who was killed in the line of duty while serving in Al Kut, Iraq with the Massachusetts National Guard 772nd Military Police Company on January 22, 2009. We are raising money in order to construct a memorial on-site at the 772nd MP Co’s armory in Taunton… It is being organized by those who were there with him and by his side while he passed on that night in January; please help us never forget the sacrifice he made to protect his family as well as his country…

    All proceeds will be used to build the memorial, and any
    excess funds will go to a scholarship to graduating high school seniors in his name.

    WHERE: 772nd Military Police Company Armory, 111 Hon
    Gordon M Owen Riverway Taunton, MA
    WHEN: Saturday August 20, 2011
    TIME: Registration starts at 9:00AM and run takes off at 11:30AM
    COST: $20 per rider and $10 per passenger

    Immediately following the run there will be hamburgers/hot dogs, chips, and beverages along with a 50/50 raffle all held in the parking lot of the Taunton Armory.

    Hi,
    I worked with Matt before he went into the service. I will be there for the ride, probably with at least two or three other guys.

    posted your ride on www.bostonbiker.com

    will pass along the word to some blue knights and wild pigs.
     
  7. I'll be there with my girl. I'll be sure to have her wear some really short shorts. First person to bring me a check for a hundred bucks made out to the Fund gets to ride right behind my bike. ;)

    Thank you all who came out to support the ride, it was a hit and we raised over $7,000!! Also, battalion came down to present us with a check as well as a memo informing us that the 772's Taunton Drill Hall will be renamed in remembrance of Matthew. Also thank you to all of our escorts (State Police, Billerica PD, Taunton PD, Suffolk Sherrif's, Raynham PD, Bridgewater PD, East Bridgewater PD, Whitman PD, Abington PD, and Rockland PD) That was the most professional escort job I have ever seen, and I have done a lot of motorcycle rallies.
