Motorcycle club pays tribute to fallen biker



Published: Wed, August 10, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



YOUNGSTOWN -- The Brothers of the Hammer motorcycle club has come together to help the family of a fellow member who died after a recent accident.

Carl "Woodchuck" Venable, 51, died July 31 from injuries he sustained in an accident involving his motorcycle and a car at Indianola and South avenues July 25.

More than 100 motorcyclists from the Brothers of the Hammer motorcycle club gathered on North Fruit Street Sunday for a ride and dinner to pay tribute to a fallen biker.

The ride proceeded from the group's clubhouse, 11 N. Fruit St., to Wick Park on Elm Street where Venable's wife was attending a family reunion. Brothers of the Hammer presented the money raised from the events -- $300 -- to Venable's family.

The Brothers of the Hammer is a motorcycle club founded in 1974. The club includes people from all walks of life who enjoy motorcycling and are dedicated to community service for the less fortunate.

There will be a police-escorted memorial ride for Venable 11:30 a.m. Friday. The ride will begin at the clubhouse and go to the scene of the accident, where club members will place a wreath and pray as a group.

Riders will then progress to Venable's funeral service at noon at L.E. Black, Phillips and Holden Funeral Home on McGuffey Road.
