A parade of motorcycles and classic cars rolled into Osakis May 30 for the Veterans of Foreign Wars' (VFW) Ride For Healing. It was a statewide event honoring the sacrifice and service of Vietnam veterans and raised money to build an education center at the national Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The Sauk Centre American Legion and Osakis VFW and Osakis VFW Auxiliary Honor Guards welcomed the group as they entered the VFW Post 7902 parking lot in Osakis.

Later that evening, a dinner was held at the Osakis VFW honoring Vietnam veterans and Ride For Healing participants.
