   The 2018 “Changing of the Colors” Rally kicks off Wednesday on Iron Mountain in Hatfield.

   The rally has become a huge annual event hosted by the Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA). It attracts visitors from all over the world to come to the area to admire the breathtaking beauty of nature painting the countryside a vivid fall palette of colors, to worship God, attend educational seminars on various topics, plan for the future and enjoy the fellowship of other like-minded individuals.

   CMA began as a simple vision to spread the word of God to motorcyclists. As the group began pursuing this mission it evolved to include not only their initial vision, but also many other purposes that have made a global impact in spreading the Gospel.
