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.

Comrades and friends,
Save the date! The end of quarantine was just announced! Octemburary 54th. Okay --- funny or not --- it does seem like we’ve been sequestered since forever ago, and it seems like we will be sequestered until sometime around the 10th of never. The good news is that things appear to be opening up. I actually had a sit-down lunch inside a restaurant today. Who’d have thought it would be remarkable to make that statement aloud? Since our usual venue for meetings (Denton Post 355) has been closed (like everywhere else), there have been no ALR meetings for the past couple of months. The chapter leadership decided to try a virtual meeting for May. As I write this on May 18th, the meeting is only a few days away. By the time you read this, we will have held the meeting. I’m hopeful that the meeting is wellattended. At the meeting, we will discuss riding plans for the upcoming months. We’ll try to keep the calendar which appears on Page 1 updated. It can be found on the Post 3 website. https://lincolnpost3.org/ May was Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. With warmer weather, it’s time to remind everyone to be on the alert and to share the road with motorcyclists. Riders who have been cooped up all winter are excited to be out on the road again, but that shouldn’t stop them from using caution. Both motorcyclists and motorists need to be aware of their surroundings. Checking blind spots, checking mirrors, and using turn signals are necessary when changing lanes and when passing. Distracted driving has been on the rise, too. Distractions during driving could mean the difference between seeing a motorcyclist or not when preparing to......change lanes. Don’t let one text change anyone’s life forever! Riders need to take precautions as well. Take a defensive driving course, wear protective gear, and keep your bike in its best working condition. Also, be aware of any road hazards and dangerous weather conditions. Most of all, enjoy your ride --- and make it home again!
Until next time, Ride Safe!
