Marine vets motorcycle club rolls into lemonade stand in honor of fallen brother
CHICAGO, ILL (BIKER DAD)— Marine vets motorcycle club rolls into lemonade stand in honor of fallen brother. It happened earlier this year in Chicago. That’s when three clubs visited the lemonade stand in honor of Marine Corporal Connor Lowry, who died in Afghanistan in March.
“Just a great, great Marine who loved his country so much,” said Modie Lavin, Connor’s mother told WBBM. “Part of his characteristics was keeping his platoon laughing during really tough times over in Afghanistan. That was kind of a morale booster.”
Marine Veterans Motorcycle Club lead the mission to the Gold Star Kids lemonade stand. Gold Star Kids are children who’ve lost parents in military service. Justified Motorcycle Club and the Canaryville Veterans Riders Association also took part, raising about $500 for the cause.
