For folks in the Altona area, Bill Herne is a well known fellow the community has supported and loved for years. Bill is famous for riding his bike around town, stopping to chat with folks and also his love for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

The love he’s shown for the community was given back Friday when supporters from far and wide joined to present him with a Rider green scooter.

Bill is in line for a knee replacement, and ahead of that, it was determined a scooter was a must, so he could continue being out and about before and after surgery. Larry and Bertha Wiebe took the lead on the fundraising project, and Morning Show Co-Host Chris Sumner chatted with Larry after the surprise presentation (listen below).

Larry and Bertha, along with the help of the Altona EMMC and supporters across Altona and beyond provided a Rider Green scooter for Bill. Community support in action, once again!
