The annual benefit trail ride at John Sweeneys farm in Buckton (Winthrop) took place recently on a perfect fall day. The participants raised $1,934 to benefit ill children and their families. The ride was along the St. Regis River and through fields and woods in the Buckton area. After the ride a tasty barbecue was enjoyed by neighbors and riders sponsored by the Sweeney and Mullen families. The top money raisers were John & Mindy Mullen and Jackie Cayea-House, who does it in memory of her son, Shawn Cayea. Several businesses and individuals donated prizes for the raffles.
