Lake Chapter of A.B.A.T.E. of Minnesota (American Bikers for Awareness, Training & Education) participated in the annual “Bowling for Kids Sake.” The event was held at McPete’s in Big Lake Oct. 13, 2013.

Lake Chapter activities are generally held just west and north of the Twin Cities. We are very proud of our members and encourage others to help out when they can.
