2018 Annual Merry-go-Round
Sunday, April 1, 2018 thru Monday, April 30, 2018

This event month long event is intended to get Legion Family out to visit other Posts/Districts and attend events (like dinners/fundraisers/bike nights etc). Designed similar to the District 1 “Unity Ride” getting Chapters out and riding together to support Legion Programs, promote The American Legion, gain members, and raise funds/awareness for C&Y programs.

The ALR Chairman Jim Day created a trophy made from “parts” that is passed around to each Chapter in the winning District until the next Merry-go-Round.
