"A little chilly, a little naked but pretty proud of the things we accomplished."

That was two members of the Low 12, Central Maine Chapter of the Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association.

They put together a ride and fundraiser to benefit The Maine Children's Home for Little Wanderers Christmas Program.

"Most of us are masons and a lot of us are Shriners, all of us are masons I should say. In our charitable oath, one of the things that we do is help kids, kids in need, families in need. I think I can say it's important for every gentleman and lady here that we do that."

They have been collecting diapers and toys for the children.

Since they collected more than four hundred boxes of diapers two of the members decided to dress as babies.

"I think everybody feels great. The three things that we really love to do is ride our motorcycles, we love to do charity work and we love to pick on each other and this works out great for a lot of people."

The riders were escorted to the Maine Home for Little Wanderers by Waterville Police where BBQ lunch was provided.

"It feels great actually to sit there and know we're helping out children and families that are local here to Maine and it's a real need and we are very proud to do this."

The fundraiser hit close to home for one member.

"I actually had two cousins adopted out of the Home for Little Wanderers shortly before I was born so this place has a special meaning to me so that's why I took this challenge from Gerry here and that made me really motivated to get some diapers together."
