The Hope Association’s 49th Snowmobile Ride-In is set from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18, at the New Hope Residential Home, 91 Highland Terrace in Mexico.

Whether people enjoy snowmobiles, good food, good fellowship or all three, the Ride-In is a free opportunity for people to experience a snowmobile ride into the woods, and to come out of the cold for a warm drink of hot chocolate, hot coffee or other beverages, and hot dogs.

The Ride-In began in 1975 with the goal of raising funds to help build the Association’s first residential home to support adults with developmental disabilities, Horizons Unlimited, and to purchase the first Activity Center on Waldo Street. Over the years, the Ride-In generated funds to help build four additional residential homes, expand the day programs, and purchase special lift-equipped vans and any additional services that support individuals with disabilities.

Ride-In raffle tickets are available at the Hope Association’s Central Office, the What Not Shop at 85 Lincoln Ave. in Rumford, and from all Hope Association employees.

Tickets cost $1 each or $5 for a book of six. Tickets will be drawn at the Ride-In with a $200 cash first Prize, $100 second prize, $25 third prize and several other prizes.

For more information, call Fawn Palmer, financial director, at 207-364-4561.
