A group that supports the families of fallen Vermont soldiers is getting a big boost from an Essex business and some inmates.
Vermont Fallen Families is auctioning off two donated Harleys refurbished by Vermont inmates. Each bike features a gold star on the fuel tank and 42 smaller gold stars, denoting the 42 fallen heroes from Vermont.
David Pearson owns Green Mountain Harley-Davidson in Essex Junction. Dana L'Esperance is with the Vermont Corrections Department. Both talk about how the two worked together for this raffle and donation.
