Hiwaymen Deliver Toys on Hundreds of Motorcycles
LEWISTON, ID —
'Twas three weeks before Christmas,
When onto the road,
Sprang hundreds of hogs,
With a holiday load.
Hiwaymen President Steve Rogers says, "Just a group of guys that enjoy riding motorcycles."
The Hiwaymen Club
On their yearly mission,
To the Salvation Army...
With local kids Christmas wishes.
Rogers says, "Spent $4,158 this morning on bicycles, scooters, toys..."
A traditional ride
In the spirit of gifts.
For over two decades
On these two-wheeled lifts.
Rogers explains the tradition started, "[In the] 1970's. One of the club brothers loaded up some toys on a bike and took it to the Childrens Home."
On Harley, on moped,
Those hundreds of bikes
From 6th Street to Lewiston
With presents for tykes.
Rogers says, "It's a community event. We have people coming from Montana, Oregon, Southern Cal."
A toy run parade as passersby wave,
Honk,.and even stop to see
These Christmas angels deliver
For all kids to have something under the tree.
Rogers says, "It helps a bunch of kids that normally wouldn't have a good Christmas."
