HOG Memorial installed at Harley-Davidson shop
MEREDITH – The Winnipesaukee Harley-Davidson Owners Group (Winni HOG), Chapter 2529, dedicated a memorial, fittingly located in front of the chapter sponsor’s dealership, Laconia Harley-Davidson in Meredith. The memorial bench and plaque were conceived of and funded by the members and represent the culmination of the chapter’s desire to honor those departed members and their families. Laconia Harley-Davidson and General Manager Will Swart provided a suitable permanent location for the tribute. It is hoped that the memorial will provide a focal point for reflection, remembrance and celebration of life for all.
Engraved on the back of the stone bench is: “IN LOVING MEMORY OF DEARLY DEPARTED WINNIPESAUKEE HOG MEMBERS, NO LONGER ON OUR RIDES BUT FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS.”
