Tina writes, “Logan Lake was hit with the loss of tourism (in 2017) but we weren’t evacuated, so we don’t qualify for government help. I hope you are sharing this idea with other clubs. Even if they only stop for gas and meals it’s a big help to the local communities. In past years when the Harley ride comes through, the restaurant they stop at gets a huge boost, which in turn helps the town.”
