Welcome Home Vets Motorcycle Run and Picnic

Saturday marked the seventh annual Welcome Home Vets Motorcycle Run and Picnic at Penn Valley’s Western Gateway Park.

Proceeds from the event provide therapy and support to local veterans and their family members addressing psychological trauma experienced while in the military. Grass Valley-based Welcome Home Vets provides local counseling and therapy resources to veterans and family members in Nevada County.

Through a donation by the Vietnam Helicopter Museum in Concord, a fully restored Vietnam era UH-1 “Huey” helicopter made an appearance Saturday and conducted an honor flight for veterans.
