Legion Riders motorcycle drawing opens

From staff reports

The American Legion Riders is hosting its 7th annual motorcycle drawing on Sept. 9 when a lucky ticket holder will win a Harley Davidson motorcycle from the DuBois Harley-Davidson shop.

Organized in 2010, the American Legion Riders’ mission is to give back to those veterans and their families who need a helping hand and to just say “thank you” for their service to our country.

It is a non-profit chapter associated with the Craig E. Fleming American Legion Post 66 in Clarion.

The group has 22 members who are mostly veterans of various branches of the service. The balance of the membership is made up of American Legion Auxiliary members and Sons of the American Legion.

The members have a common love for riding motorcycles and each year they try to ride for as many organizations that give freely of their time and good fortune to help others as they can.

The American Legion Riders take pride in participating in escorting the Moving Wall, standing guard during the Memorial Day service in Clarion, and escorts for the multiple sclerosis event in Cook Forest.

Due to the success of their previous six events, they are proud to have given approximately $60,000 to veterans and their families in our area and surrounding communities and to other deserving organizations and events that are connected to veterans in some way.

All proceeds from this drawing are earmarked for veterans and their families.

There are a limited number of tickets available only 325 tickets will be sold. Tickets are now available for sale.

If you are interested in purchasing a ticket or have any questions concerning this event or organization, contact Susan of American Legion Riders at (814) 229-4317.

New members are always welcome to join this active organization.
