Our membership is made up of riders from The American Legion family. We meet the first Saturday of every month at 10:00AM and ride afterwards.
We support our Post, our Veterans, and our community with fundraising events throughout the year. These events include:
An annual event that supports a multitude of Programs and Charities of the American Legion Riders. This year's event will be held on May 1st. Click here for more information
We provide motorcycle escorts for Veterans and their families to National Cemeteries, when requested by their families. This year we have provided escorts several times.
An annual event that supports Daystar Life Center's Food Bank with donation of hams and other foods during the Holiday season. This year's event was held on December 5, 2020 and was very successful. With the support from Crystal River Eagles Aeire #4272 and the Eagle Riders, the RRU Family Social Club, Inverness Fl, American Legion Post 237, Legion Riders Chapter 237, American Legion Auxiliary Unit 237, Beverly Hills Fl and our Post's
Legion Riders and other members, we were able to donate 260 pounds of food and $2,000. in cash.
We partner with our brother AML Post 237, in raising money to purchase wreaths and remembering our fellow fallen Veterans by placing the wreaths on grave sites at Bushnell National Cemetery during the Holiday season. There was a great turnout for the ride to Bushnell National Cemetery to place the wreaths at gravesites was held on December 20th this year.
Along with Legion Riders all across the country, we participate to raise awareness of the critical issues facing our nation’s Veterans and to demand action for the 82,000 service members missing, as well as raise awareness of the 22 veterans who die by suicide each day.
We hold several rides a year to raise fund for the American Legion, our Post, child welfare, the homeless, the needy and Veteran related programs.
For God and Country
