The blessing of the bikes
KIRKLAND – Roy Smith and Joyce Gregg came from Rockford. Teresa Alagna and her husband, all the way from Winnebago. Others came from much closer. Saying they heard about it from friends, the motorcycle enthusiasts all came to Franklin Township Park in Kirkland on Saturday for the same reason: to participate in the Blessing of the Bikes.
“We all have to look out for each other,” Gregg said, looking overhead. “It doesn’t hurt to have that angel above us.”
“Any luck you can get is better than nothing,” Smith said, adding that to him the event is a remembrance of those who aren’t there.
