HERKIMER – The Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES Cruise-In Bike Night & Chicken BBQ on Thursday, June 16, raised $4,000 that will provide student opportunities such as attending the SkillsUSA New York State Conference.

“This money will help our student members participate in many SkillsUSA competitions and activities next year,” said Holly Rotundo Fischer, Herkimer BOCES cosmetology instructor and SkillsUSA advisor. “We thank all of the businesses for their generous donations in supporting us with this event.”

More than 110 cars and motorcycles were entered into the Cruise-In’s car and motorcycle show. The event also featured barbecue chicken meals, other food, a bake sale, Chinese auction and 50/50 raffle operated by the Sopranos Cruzers, with music provided by Audio King.

Dolgeville resident Bob Sheppard entered his ’49 Ford pickup into the show, and it was his first time attending the event.

“Good turnout,” he said.

Sheppard, who went through the BOCES automotive program, said it’s good that the event also supports student activities.

Palatine Bridge resident Alan Brust said he attended a Cruise-In at Herkimer BOCES back in 1999 and heard about it again this year, so he decided to check it out again. He loves the event, he said.

"It's come along nice," he said. "I ordered the chicken barbecue too, so I'm going to go do that now too."
