Employees of Vermeer Corporation in Pella are gearing up for their second annual ride across the state – on mopeds. VEMRAI, or Vermeer Employee Moped Ride Across Iowa, is open to Vermeer employees, their families and friends, and will run Friday through Sunday, September 18th through the 20th. The ride is a fun, less strenuous way to enjoy the state on two wheels, according to event organizer Mike Foster. Participants also raise money for “Vermeer Cares” – a program that aids employees in crisis situations. To find out more about VEMRAI, contact Mike Foster at 641-780-4756.
