Greetings Legionnaires:

     Letís give a very special thank you with sincere appreciation going out to the Riders who attended the Veteranís Day activities at Thomas Jefferson High School on November 10th. These Riders participated in a short parade on motorcycle, no small feat during November, and interacted with the kids during their annual day of appreciation for service and recognition of Veterans: VP Bill Allan; Sr Sergeant-at-Arms Tom Bodner; Rider John Caligiure; Sergeant-at-Arms Ed Harmon; Rider Dave Harris; VP Kevin Jackson; Rider Lee Phillips and Road Captain Bob Stefanic. Thank you, Veterans and Patriots, one and all, for volunteering and paying it forward to the next generation.

     The Post Gun Bash was held on November 18th and seemed like a great success. Everyone who attended had a great time and allot of lucky winners won valuable prizes. Hopefully Post 712 will make the Gun Bash an annual event for fun and as a means to raise money for the Legion. Thanks to all the Riders who Volunteered their time to support this great event: VP Bill Allan, Sr. Sergeant-at-Arms Tom Bodner, Secretary Susan Dillon, Sr. VP Ken Lancaster, Rider Paul Marthinsen, Rider Lee Phillips and Rider Margie Phillips; though a very special shout-out goes to Susan, Lee and Margie for the work they did running all day long during the gun bash. Because of Volunteers good things happen!

     The Riders are very happy to donate $250 to the Southwest Veterans Christmas gift fund which supports the Veterans in this VA facility and another $100 to the Post 712 Angel Tree to purchase gifts for a disadvantaged child. The Angel Tree is located at Post 712 and all patrons of the Post are very highly encouraged to support this great effort to brighten Christmas for a child.

     The Riders annual Christmas Party will be held at Post 712 on Saturday, December 2nd. Invitations have been mailed so get your RSVPís turned in or call or email your response. Plans are underway for a great party. Thank you Treasurer Beverly Weikel who is leading the charge in planning the Christmas Party along with her committee of Secretary Susan Dillon and Special Events Coordinator Chris Bodner.

You can check us out on our Facebook page, American Legion Riders Post 712 or The next Riders meeting is at 1900 hours, Tuesday, December 5th. See you there.
