ROXBURY — The Roxbury Riders ATV Club will hold its annual Mystery Night Ride for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program starting at 5 p.m. Saturday, June 21.

The venue for the cookout, children’s rides, mystery children’s movie and campfire with s’mores is trail master Michael and Wanda Worthley’s home at 1162 Roxbury Notch Road (Route 120) in Roxbury.

The cookout cost is $5. If people can’t make the event, but want to donate, they can send checks to Roxbury ATV Riders, P.O. Box 196, Roxbury, ME 04275.

“The public is welcome to join us for the cookout and movie,” said Worthley, who is also the club president.

The cookout and movie are topped with a mystery ride. Last year’s event raised approximately $800 for the program and the mystery ride was on the new Bemis Loop Trail, Michael Worthley said Wednesday night.

“We’re trying to get children patients and survivors to come, so we can take them for short ride,” he said.

Last year, they had one little girl, who is in the children’s cancer program and fighting leukemia, join them with her mom and brother.

Worthley said Saturday night’s mystery ride “should be a good, easy ride” on a 56-mile loop.

“It may be closer to 11 p.m. or midnight when we return,” he said. “It depends on how many go on the ride and how many times we stop. You will not want to miss this ride. This will be the first time for a lot of us on this trail. I aim to please all of my friends in the ATV world. Don’t miss this grand opening.”

Teenage children can join the ride if they use their own machine, have taken an ATV safety course, wear helmets and are accompanied by an adult riding their own ATV, Jane Ryerson, treasurer, said on the club’s Facebook page.
