ROXBURY —  The Roxbury Riders ATV Club held its annual Mystery Night Ride for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program on June 21 and raised $1,150, club president Michael Worthley said Thursday via Facebook.

The event featured a cookout, children’s rides, mystery children’s movie and campfire with s’mores at Worthley’s home on Roxbury Notch Road. He said a dozen or so children were taken for an ATV ride to Record Hill Wind’s 22-turbine wind farm in Roxbury and back.

The cookout and movie were topped with a night mystery ride. The mystery ride was on the new Bemis Loop Trail, Worthley said. Last year’s ride raised about $800 for the cancer program.

For the mystery ride on June 21, people riding 78 ATVs went on a 61-mile loop on a new trail around Elephant Mountain in Townships C and D.

“When the big group left, the kids were cooking s’mores,” Worthley said. “It was not a bad night, but the ride was cold.”
