Tom Merrill is riding his bicycle from the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland to Venice, La., in an effort he named Pedaling for Pelicans. Merrill, a North Canton, Ohio, native, is riding to raise awareness and money for those organizations helping to revitalize the habitats harmed by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Merrill made a stop in Vandalia last Friday with hopes of sitting in a barber’s chair and hearing stories about Abraham Lincoln. More information about Merrill’s ride can found at Pedaling For Pelicans.
