Chapter Events

The The American Legion Riders Chapter #347 hosts or participates in various social & riding events during the year.  Members have a chance to gather and enjoy fellowship and commaraderie, exchange riding stories and practices, meet new Riders from Chapters statewide, and come together to raise funds for our Chapter chartitable objectives.  Proceeds raised from our events support multiple local and statewide programs and organizations, as well as individual veterans and their families in need.  We Ride and Work For the Cause ----- Not the Applause!
