The Jasonville Park Board held the eighth annual Jasonville’s Mayor Ride on Aug. 27. The morning started out raining and overcast, but after a decision to hold off the ride for about an hour, the rain lifted and it turned out to be a beautiful day.

Once again the ride was a success and everyone enjoyed the day.

The Park Board and all the participants would like to thank each and everyone that donated and sponsored the ride.

Without all the sponsorships and these donations we would not be able to host the ride each year.
