The 8th annual Rotary Rumble, sponsored by the Great Bridge Rotary Club and The Castaways Riding Club, will be held on May 12th. The motorcycle ride, an 80 to 100 mile scenic rural route, will start at Bayside Harley in Portsmouth and end at the Lazy Horse Saloon in Chesapeake. Music will be provided by a local band at the Lazy Horse.  The event has allowed the Great Bridge Rotary Club to donate approximately $55,000 to local children’s groups over the years.  Edmarc Hospice for Children, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, The Y, Children’s Harbor, Tidewater Youth Services and others have benefitted from funds raised by the event.  To learn more about the Rotary Rumble visit:  http://www.greatbridgerotary.org/
