Pine tree egg ride this weekend

BANGOR - It's almost time again for people to fill their suits with raw eggs for a messy snowmobile ride.

The folks from Q106.5 are once again holding an annual egg ride to raise money for the Pine Tree Camp.

It provides a summer camp experience for children and adults with disabilities.

For every $50 dollars raised, the riders will add another raw egg to their suits.

Radio announcers were collecting donations Thursday at Danforths supermarket in Hermon.

They'll be back at the store tomorrow collecting more donations and hope more people will pitch in to help.

They'll hit the trail Saturday morning in Levant and will ride to Newport where a big pulled pork feast will be held.
