The Nakatosh Chapter of the Priesthood Motorcycle Ministry held its 6th annual Cane River Thunder Full Throttle Motorcycle Rally at the parish fair grounds April 22. The 13 members of the local chapter were joined by fellow bikers and supporters from around Louisiana and surrounding states in a day-long rally that culminated in a program to honor 5 local veterans. The rally was held to raise funds for “Operation Homefront” which features several programs supporting military members and their families. The Nakatosh Chapter expects to raise around $4,000 for this worthy cause. In addition to a Skittles run and a run down the Cane River, the rally featured a “Best Bike” contest and biker games in which riders and their passengers displayed their ability to handle their motorcycles under challenging conditions.
