(MITCHELL) – The 6th annual American Legion Riders Post 250 Memorial Ride is Saturday.
“This is our biggest fundraiser of the year,” says Greg Allen ALR Director. “The proceeds and donations generate Christmas gifts and needed items for local veterans in nursing homes.”
During their first year, they provided gifts to 9 veterans in one nursing home.
“With the love and support from our community we have grown to around 7 nursing homes in the surrounding area, providing gifts to between 75 to 80 veterans,” Allen added. “Many do not have any living relatives. They look forward to our support every year. We will never forget those who fought for us and our freedom.”
The ride will begin at the Cecil M. Martin Post 250 in Mitchell. Registration begins at 9 a.m., with kickstands up at 10:30 a.m.
The cost to ride is $25.
There will be a silent auction, fun run, raffles, and dinner for all riders.
Live music will begin at 6 p.m.
If it rains, the event will be August 10, 2019.
