Pappys Run Benefit & Party

Sat. April 14th, Mark you calendars for this event.
A full buffet, cash bar, and entertainment by Merge Right. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door or in advance. All proceeds will be used to help pay for the Police and Fire Department's assistance during Pappy's Run in May. Pappy's Run has always been a free event and we would like it to continue that way. But the costs of the police and fire support increases annually. Help by attending this great event and by passing the word.

Pappys Run 2007 32 annual - Sunday, May 27th

Before 1975 bike enthusiasts in Connecticut and many other states had to wear a helmet, it was the law. But a man by the name of Donald Pittsley of Montville, also known as Pappy, fought to do away with helmets, and in 1975 the law was repealed. Donald Pittsley died of a heart attack in 1975 shortly before his efforts won the battle to repeal the helmet law.

He died in May, 1975 very unexpectedly. Without his early accomplishments fighting the helmet law fight, it is very possible today that all states would still have the helmet law.

On August 11th 2004 during the annual Sturgis Rally, Donald "Pappy" Pittsley was inducted into the Sturgis Museum Hall of Fame. His long time friend John "Rogue" Herlihy accepted the introduction award in Pappy’s honor, the following year, Rogue himself was inducted. There have been many other accolades to Pappy since his death in 1975, articles in Easy Rider, Chopper, and other motorcycle industry magazines, features and editorials in local and national newspapers, and of course… the legendary 30 annual memorials to Don… “Pappy’s Run”. To this day “Pappy’s Run” is held on Memorial Day Weekend in Southeastern Connecticut.
