To the editor:

On July 8, 2017, the American Legion Riders of Post #925 (Norfolk) hosted their annual motorcycle charity ride.

This year, it was a fundraiser for the 10th Mountain Division/Fort Drum Wounded Warrior Fund, We held our traditional ham and salt potatoes dinner and raffled off many prizes that had been generously donated by the local communities.

On August 20, 2017, President LoGalbo presented a check for $3200 to David Pavey, the Executive Director for the National 10th Mountain Division Association.

The American Legion Riders of Post #925 (Norfolk) is a group of motorcycle enthusiasts recruited from the American Legion family (Legion, Auxiliary, Sons) of St Lawrence County. They conduct charity rides and assist in local veterans’ events. The Legion Riders meet on the third Sunday of the month at 1pm at the American Legion in Norfolk.
