Due to a lack of snow the Mayor’s Trail Ride planned for Feb. 11 has been canceled.
The snowmobile ride had already been postponed from its original Jan. 21 date with the hope that winter weather would show up so the ride could go on. Everything was in place for the ride, except for the snow.
This would have been the third annual ride, which attracted 156 snowmobilers last year. They followed the Rum River from the Anoka County Fairgrounds north to St. Francis, with stops at several businesses in Anoka, Andover, St. Francis and Ramsey.
The trail ride is a fund-raiser for groups in Andover, Anoka, Nowthen, Oak Grove, Ramsey and St. Francis. In past years the mayor of each community announced his chosen charity at the end of the ride.
Those who had pre-registered for the ride can contact the Anoka Area Chamber of Commerce for a refund. The Chamber can be reached at 763-421-7130 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those who are interested, the Chamber is also willing to keep the registrations on file so participants can be pre-registered for next year.
