Bikes to roar at Bethesda Home

Staff writer

Most assisted living residents at Bethesda Home in Goessel no longer drive, but still appreciate good vehicles.

Bethesda annually is host for a car show to celebrate Fathers Day. This year, that will include a motorcycle parade on Friday.

“We’re going to have a group of motorcyclists come through our circle drive in the front of the building, with the men outside,” said Ariel Kraus, a life enrichment assistant at Bethesda.

She helped to organize the parade.

The parade will start at 2:30 p.m. Kraus estimates it to go through 3 p.m. Participation is open to anyone. It won’t be exclusive to motorcycles; three-wheelers and anything else in a similar class will be welcome.

“The residents enjoy getting to see the different things in the community, and it’s extra special when they know who the person is that’s coming,” Kraus said. “Last year during the car show, we would announce the person and the car they’re driving; it made it a little more personal if the resident knew them.”

Additional information for potential cyclists is available from Bethesda’s life enrichment department at (620) 367-2291.
