WASHINGTON COUNTY - Steady rain that fell throughout the morning and afternoon Sunday kept riders away from the second annual Women Ride for Women Build fundraiser.
Some motorcycle riders were expected to attend a picnic later that afternoon at Harley-Davidson of Williamsport.
The event raises money for Women Build, which is part of the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity, said event chairwoman Gidget Gallahan. Women Build --Â an international organization --Â formed in Hagerstown in 2005.
The local group has about 20 active members and is preparing to build its third house. Work is expected to begin in the fall on the home on Concord Street in Hagerstown, Gallahan said.
She said the group holds fundraisers to purchase the materials needed to build the homes. It takes about $60,000 to build each house, Gallahan said.
