We will be meeting on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30PM.
The American Legion Riders is a family oriented group working with the American Legion to promote and aid in the support of our veteran community. The idea of a riders group within the American Legion originated in 1993 when the American Legion Post 396 in Garden City Michigan approached their commander with the concept. It was accepted as a program of the American Legion. It was the brainchild of Legionnaire Chuck (Tramp) Dare and approved by Commander (Polka) Bill Kaledas.
From this humble beginning grew a movement within the American Legion that has spread to posts throughout the United States. True to its original intentions, Legion Riders provide a great service to the communities they live in. They organize charity rides, poker runs and hospital visits. They ride in parades and their presence is a visible extension of the American Legion. They contribute their time and effort to strengthening their respective posts and spreading good will throughout their community.
To participate in parades and other ceremonies that are in keeping with the Aims and Purposes of the American Legion.
To promote motorcycle safety programs and to provide a social atmosphere for American Legion members who share the same interest.
To use our Association to promote and support programs of the American Legion.
