Successful Events

At the time of this writing, I just finished up packing the bike, ready to head south in the morning. From the looks of registration, we are going to have a successful In-State-Unity Ride. About seventy (70) bikes on the South Route and forty (40) on the North Route. I am sure as we go, it will get larger as people join the routes as we go along.

From the reports from American Legion Post 10, it sounds like everything is ready for the Rally. Big thanks go out to Joe Marcheggiani and Jeff Hawk and their team for all efforts in what sure will be a successful Rally.

This is our last event for this Legion year, and Beverly and I would like to thank everyone for their continued support. We are still working on our location for the Summit next year, and a few other exciting things for the Rally and the In-State-Ride. We also need your input, what would you like to do, let us know.

By the way, thanks for the great turn out for the Children & Youth Picnic!

Beverly & I have already started putting together next years schedule. The Summit Meet & Greet will be on February 2, followed by classes on 3rd, 4th & 5th. The Unity Ride will be the second week in May to avoid conflicts with Holy Week and Thunder on the Beach. Still working on the In-State Rally, more to come.

Again, Thank You for all your Efforts!

Here is our tentative schedule for the balance of the year for your review and comments.

July 1st to July 4th, Department Convention.

Beverly and I would like to thank each of you for the support we received this last year! Thank You for what you do, and we are proud to be part of your Leadership Team of such a great group!
