andrews@herald-mail.com A group of motorcycle-riding law enforcement officers can hold its monthly meetings at a garage off Elizabeth Street, the Hagerstown Board of Zoning Appeals ruled Wednesday.

When you see Hammerhead, Ox, Hardcore and the rest of the Defenders rumbling through your town, just remember this: They aren't looking to make trouble. Because most of them are police officers and first responders, their day jobs usually involve putting an end to trouble. Seven members and an associate of the Defenders Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club's 56th and newest chapter, the Mason-Dixon Chapter, donned their colors and mounted their Harleys on Saturday for a ride through the county.

People were shocked at the news that the 10th-grader died Sunday morning. But the ride went on and at a dinner later in the evening at The Improved Order of Red Men Tribe 84 Club, friends of Forsythe grappled with the loss. "A lot of people are going to be crying on Monday," said Williamsport High School sophomore Cassie Wollard, who had known Forsythe since she was in sixth grade.

Editor's note: This is one in an occasional series of profiles of area residents who share the stories of their lives and experiences. Just like the movie classic, Imogene Doub says, "It's been a wonderful life. " A few months shy of her 90th birthday, the Williamsport resident can look back at a remarkable life journey that has run the gamut from riding a motorcycle across Texas to riding the waves in Europe and the South Pacific. In-between travels have been art classes, leadership roles in the Washington County Council of Homemakers Clubs, and all-night sessions making doughnuts at her church.

The organization raised nearly $70,000 to build the house on Wayside Avenue in Hagerstown, according to Gidget Gallahan. Funds are raised through events like a golf tournament, auction and Sunday's motorcycle ride that Gallahan organized. The ride was Women Build's first, but Gallahan said it could become an annual fundraiser.
