Newsletter – July 2017

Chapter 5 was represented at the 2017 White Mountain MC Rally! Arrived Friday pm for registration, hot dogs, hamburgers and festivities. Saturday rode 200+ miles on Poker Run and back and forth to Hondah with friends. Enjoyed big juicy steaks and a concert by the “Animals”! Left before they played ‘We Gotta Get Out of This Place” damit, as I remember dancing to that in VN with rifles in our hands. Left before it was over, about 11pm, to drive 40 miles to Springerville through elk and deer country. Conrad rode just ahead of me and Victor just behind as my main headlight was out and only had brights. INTERESTING! They were pros as it worked great. Life is good! Our next ALR meeting is July 11, 2017. Hope to see you all there. The riders want to have more social events, rides and continue our good work for veterans.
Enjoy, Husker

American Legion Riders July 2017

Newsletter – June 2017

On May 5th The riders rode to Arrey leaving at 8:30 for a cool ride and a great breakfast, then went in search of Stanley the camel. Stanley is still alive and well. They rode back through Garfield.

Riders rode to Las Cruces to meet the riders for “Run for the Wall.” The riders come from all states and ride from California to DC in support of MIA and POW issues. In DC they join “Rolling Thunder,” a demonstration parade in support of POW MIA issues.

The ride was up on the interstate and back on the old highway. It solved hunger problems and a need for some open road.

Then ceremonies Monday at the New Cemetery, Old Cemetery, Park, and The Wall. Some plan to leave for Silver City after flags Saturday to attend Blues and Bikes Blue Grass
