“Back the Badge” Ride Raised Funds for Law Enforcement in Paulding County
The American Legion Riders of Post 111 in Dallas & Pirate Printing in Hiram co-sponsored the 2016 "Back the Badge" Ride on Saturday, September 17, 2016. Over 100 motorcyclists joined the ride that was escorted by Paulding County Sheriff, Gary Gulledge and a number of deputies.
100% of the proceeds from the event will be presented to law enforcement in Paulding County – the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office, the Hiram Police Department and the City of Dallas Police Department.
The ride ended at the American Legion Post 111, where there was a family fun day, featuring a demonstration by the Pil Sung Do Martial Arts school from Dallas.
