It was so much fun picking out a present and wondering if it would be taken by someone else.
We had 26 members who participated in our holiday party.
Before the party actual got started we had a lot of great food to eat. Pizza and appetizers. We ordered the pizza, but all the appetizers were brought by the riders. Continue reading
The American Legion Riders were lucky enough to get the opportunity to park cars for this game. I say lucky because this is a huge fundraiser for our group.
It can take years to get your name drawn to participate in this type of fundraiser. This year was our lucky year!!
We don’t have pictures of everyone, but we had a good turnout of helpers. I believe it was 10 riders who helped out that day.
2016 marks the 25th anniversary of holiday wreaths being donated to decorate graves at Arlington National Cemetery. The 8th year of a national campaign-dubbed Wreaths Across America will bring the same remembrance to hundreds of participating locations. Continue reading
It’s a great time to get with our friends. There is always plenty of good food and drinks for everyone.
We always end the night sitting around the fire pit eating smores and enjoying each others company.
This year we had food, a motorcycle show, a bouncy house for the children, live music, silent auction, vendors and a beer garden (for adults only).
.List of businesses that made donations:
- Brooks Yamaha
- Motorcycle Supply
- Meritrust Bank
- Three Rivers Engraving
- Harley Davidson of Junction City
- Celebration Fireworks
Our group was small for this ride (9 of us).
It doesn’t matter if we have 5 members or 25 participating in our rides it is always a fun time. Continue reading
You get cold weather! And within our first 45 miles, we got pelleted by freezing rain twice. Several people in the group backed out because of the cold temperatures, but those of us who went on this trip had a great time.
We stopped in Marion, KS to see our first waterfall. It is a manmade one in the city park area, but it was still very pretty. Next we made our way to Ellinwood, KS to check out the underground tunnels and old Hotel (with paranormal activity).
Some of the American Legion Riders participated in handing out poppy’s for Poppy Days. This was done on Saturday May 7th at local grocery stores in Manhattan. (not all who helped are shown)
If you weren’t able to make it for dinner, you missed out on Beef stroganoff with homemade egg noodles. We also served country green beans, salad and dinner rolls.
If that wasn’t already good enough we also had brownies, ice cream and homemade chocolate fudge sauce. Yummy!!
We want to thank Vista Drive-In for donating the ice cream.
