The American Legion Riders held their poker run on September 9th. They raised $3000 to donate to Patriotic Productions and the JAVELAN organization. Each organization received $1500. They also raised $100 for the food bank. The Riders will be ringing bells for the Salvation Army at the Hobby Lobby on December 1st. They will also be participating in the Veterans Parade on November 12th. The photos below are of the two organizations that received money from our September 9th poker run.
Lincoln Chapter 3 American Legion Riders
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
We are NOT a motorcycle club!
We are a part of the nation’s largest wartime veteran’s service organization, members of the American Legion “Family” (Legionnaires, Sons and Auxiliary members) who have joined together to ride our motorcycles for fun and fellowship and to remember and dedicate our self to our original purpose. Service to Our Country.
Being a part of the American Legion, the Riders are committed to:
1. Mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs for them in our communities,
2. Advocating patriotism and honor,
3. Promoting strong national security, and
4. Continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.
True to the Legion's grassroots tradition, each local Riders chapter manages its programs at the post level. Annually the Post 3 Riders are part of many projects and events.

Reports from Committees-
- Rifle raffle committee – Streeter reported recommendation on firearm purchase for 2024 raffle. Henry factory option. The problem is Henry has no idea when within the next 6 months it will be shipped. To ensure we have it for the ABATE show, the committee recommends a Henry Golden Boy Rifle bought from Bud’s Guins for $511.00. Committee chair and Treasurer will buy the rifle and ship it to Nebraska Guns in Lincoln who will do the transfer of ownership to Mike Streeter so we can show and sell raffle tickets until just prior to the end of the raffle and then they take it back into inventory and assist us in making the award. Motion by Paulson, second by Silcock to purchase the rifle from Scheels, motion rescinded without vote. Lori Gubser made a motion, second by Paulson to purchase the rifle from Buds Guns, via internet for $511,99 having it shipped to Nebraska Guns. Motion passed.
