Special activities to aid Dream Come True With a goal in mind to raise funds for veterans, youth programs and Dream Come True, the Mountaineers Detachment 996 Marine Corps League is planning a second annual car show, motorcycle show and poker run at the new Flagstaff Park.

The event is co-sponsored by Rolling Thunder Pa. Chapter, with assistance by Mopar Madness and will be held on July 17, with July 18 as a rain date. Gates open at 10 a.m.

The Poker Run includes a 50-mile ride through the scenic areas of the Poconos. The event will include a pig roast and entertainment.

The Mountaineers Marine Corps League Detachment visits nursing homes and participates in parades, veterans orientated events and Toys for Tots.

Dream Come True recently formed the Blue Ridge Chapter, which strives to fulfill wishes of children in the Carbon County area and in surrounding communities.
