AMERICAN LEGION RIDERS DECEMBER
Riders and Friends,
Well, what a long, strange trip 2020 has been. As we near the
end of this very interesting year, it appears that The Grateful
Dead called it right back in 1977.
Nevertheless, your American Legion Riders still participated
in a number of events --- although at a much smaller number.
Looking back at my calendar for October, I don’t see any
events that we participated in as a group. I do know that
several Riders participated as individuals, representing our Chapter, at a number
of Patriot Guard missions.
Sadly, the Lincoln Veterans Parade was canceled, and we had very much
looked forward to that event. Here’s hoping that next year’s parade will be bigger
and better than ever.
November is traditionally the time when we look back and reflect on how
thankful we are for our many blessings. This November was no different.
I’m thankful to have been afforded the opportunity to serve our Chapter. I’m
thankful for the many friendships that have increased over the past year. I’m
thankful that we have Chapter members who are willing to pitch in whenever,
and wherever, needed. And, I’m thankful that the COVID impact has been
extremely minimal on Chapter members, our families, and our friends.
Looking forward. By the time you read this, we will have held our November
meeting (via Zoom) and have a slate of officers for the 2021 Rider year to be
voted on at the December meeting. I am confident that whatever names appear
on that slate will continue the great work that all American Legion Riders
Until next time, Ride Safe!

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.
