American Legion Riders: Chair

From the Chairman

March 2023

Thank You to all who attended the Summit. The feedback from Survey Monkey has been very positive, but we need everyone’s feedback. Survey Monkey’s results drove many of the changes you experienced this year. Keep your ideas coming!

This year’s attendance was consistent with other years, but the big difference was the first-time attendees. They made up for over a third of the total attendance. They were engaged and asked some excellent questions of our instructors. As they were leaving, they promised to return next year to pick up on what they missed.

What’s next, you ask? The Round Robin month of October, the Children and Youth Picnic, The In-State Unity Ride, and then the big “Blow Out” at the OCC Rally! At 5:30 that day, someone will have a brand-new Harley Davidson Road Glide.

Just think, if one hundred of our Chapters purchased $200 each in tickets, that would cover our cost of the bike. That would also allow the Chapters to win and resale the Bike to benefit his/her Post and Chapter. That would be a “win-win” for the winning Chapter and The ALR Department. Please get with your District Chairs and Sell, Sell, and Sell those Rally Tickets!

As you all know, the net dollars raised from the Bike Raffle go to a very worthy cause. From PVR/SPI standpoint, we have made some fantastic strides with our Strategic Partners and record disbursements to the veterans needing assistance. Without our continued commitment to the “Cause,” we could never have met these goals, and for that, We Say THANK YOU!

Thanks to all that participate; Ride Safe, looking forward to seeing you soon
