HERKIMER – Cars, motorcycles and a chicken barbecue on Thursday, June 13, will help raise money to support Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES student activities.

Funds raised during the annual Herkimer BOCES Cruise-In Bike Night & Chicken BBQ will help students in the Herkimer BOCES chapter of SkillsUSA attend regional, state and potentially national conferences. At the conferences, students can put to use the career and technical education skills they learn at BOCES by competing against peers from other schools.

The car and motorcycle show takes place from 5-8 p.m. outside in the main parking lot of the Herkimer BOCES WEB Complex at 352 Gros Blvd. in Herkimer. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third in both the car and motorcycle categories.

Chicken BBQ tickets can be purchased for $12 by calling 315-867-2043. Get yours early because the chicken dinners often sell out before the car and motorcycle show even begins. The Chicken BBQ will be available for pick up starting at 3 p.m.

A $1 donation to benefit the Herkimer BOCES chapter of SkillsUSA is asked to enter a car or motorcycle in the competition. General admission is free.

The Cruise-In also includes a bake sale, Chinese auction, 50/50 raffle and music provided by Audio King.

SkillsUSA, which is a national organization for students who are enrolled in technical or trade programs, aims to help students develop leadership abilities through participation in educational, occupational, civic, recreational and social activities.
