LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - In less than two weeks, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department will conduct its fourth annual motorcycle benefit ride for Honor Flight between 10 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 16. All proceeds from the event will benefit Honor Flight South Carolina.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said Sgt. David Amick will coordinate the motorcycle benefit ride. Citizens who want to participate in the event or who want additional information about the event can contact Amick on his cell phone at (803) 223-3778. Amick supervises road patrol deputies, resident deputies and school resource officers who are assigned to the Chapin Patrol District.

Registration for the event will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 16 at S&S Road Consultants, Inc., 930 Chapin Road, Chapin, Metts said. Motorcycle riders will begin departing at 12 p.m. and return no later than 4:00 p.m. Shodown will perform live music at the event.

Motorcycle riders will ride in areas near Lake Murray, Metts said. The cost is $25 per motorcycle rider and $15 per motorcycle passenger.

Honor Flight provides airline and ground transportation for World War II military veterans to visit military memorials in Washington, D.C., Metts said. Amick previously served in the U.S. Navy.

“As a military veteran, David recognizes the importance of honoring persons who have defended America’s freedoms in military combat,” Metts said.

“Honor Flight South Carolina enables military veterans who are living on fixed incomes to visit memorials that our nation constructed in order to recognize the sacrifices that have been made by men and women who have served in our nation’s armed forces,” Metts said.
