I hope to follow in the footsteps of the previous Directors and continue to help build the Legion Riders of
Post #166 . We continue to get more new members and have more than doubled our membership in the past
4 years.We are now in the eyes and ears of the Legion and the public by our exposure at multiple fund raisers that we have sponsored and/or participated in.We all are part of a team to assist in helping Our Legion, Community, and of course, Our Troops. I look forward to us continuing this support and enjoying our upcoming events and rides this year.

Director / Secretary.
The American Legion Riders Chapter of Post # 166 was formed in September of 2007 with five members. Today there are seventy-two members who are active in Legion Rider activities as well as many other Post 166 functions. The Riders are dedicated to preserving the four pillars of the Legion and participating in projects and ceremonies sponsored by the Post. Some of the recent activity includes, the presentation of a check for $4000 to "Women Supporting Women" a local cancer support group, operation "Camp Alamo" at Hoopers during bike week, our "Annual Crab Feast" during the Legion Convention,
Riders Outreach at Christmas
Santa and his Legion Riders made two stops at Veterans homes tonight. We came home with a lump in our throat, tear in our eye, and respect for what we have in life. My Christmas and others was made tonight by the smiles of those less fortunate that will now have a well deserved Christmas. Thank you Bonnie Hansen, Vicki Newberger, Lois Barstis and Greta Roland for all your help and Ed Hansen, Mathew Newberger and Carroll Cartwright for helping deliver gifts of love to our Veterans and their families. God Bless you all. God Bless Our Troops, and God Bless America.
