Chapter 5 ALR riders rode to Hatch on April 10th with a couple of visiting Legion riders from Palmer, Pennsylvania. We especially enjoyed their company and an opportunity to ride and socialize.

On April 26 the American Legion Riders and the American Legion cooperated and moved a wheel chair ramp and porch from a veteran’s place that no longer needed it to another veteran in need of it. It was pure pleasure to watch the men use their expertise and knowledge to accomplish this job in short order. The ramp was much appreciated.

Our next ALR meeting is May 2nd. Hope to see you all there. The riders want to have more social events, rides and continue our good work for veterans. Enjoy, Husker

Feb 25, 2017 Legion Rider Event –
New Mexico American Legion Riders (about 30 bikes) rode into T or C Saturday. They all came here to serve the staff lunch. The riders gathered at the wall, then went to the Veteran’s home and set up to grill hamburgers and brats with the fixings. Banana bread and cookies were served for desert. The staff came for lunch when convenient. The riders visited with individual veterans in the home and enjoyed sharing stories with the old veterans. It was a beautiful day for a picnic in the courtyard.

After 4 p.m., the riders convened at American Legion 44. A potato bar was served with all the toppings. The riders had a great time playing pool and enjoying Post 44. Thanks to the Chapter 5 ALR riders for your participation and helping this event.

Sincerely,
John Husker Bush, Pres. Chapt. 5
