It was a perfect day on the river dividing Calais Maine USA and St. Stephen’s New Brunswick Canada where Motor Maids met to exchange flags in celebration of the 2010 International Female Ride Day on Friday 7 May!
It was a spectacular happening with nearly 50 motorcycles and Motor Maids from as far away as Nova Scotia and Florida! The women formed two lines with the Canadian and American flags flying from the lead bikes, an exchange that took place at 12-noon on the Ferry Point Bridge the international border.
“It was a perfect day and a perfect way to commemorate International Female Ride Day”, stated Lil Charron, district Director for Motor Maid chapters in Maine Vermont and New Hampshire. After a greeting and a welcome from Lil, the ceremony began with an invocation and bike blessing.
Calais Mayor Vinton Cassidy read a proclamation from the Calais City Council announcing Friday May 7 2010 as lady motorcycle day in Calais—everyone cheered!
All of us at MOTORESS wish to extend a very special thank you to the Motor Maids for contributing in such a unique and tremendous manner to this yearly campaign!
