American Legion Riders of Post #925 of Norfolk raises $4,825 for Wounded Warrior Fund
Friday, August 30, 2019 - 6:58 am

On July 13, the American Legion Riders of Post #925 (Norfolk) hosted 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 donated by the local communities. We were able to raise $4,825.

Raising this much money for such a good cause would not have been possible without the wonderful support and generosity of our local communities and the dedicated work of our members. The ride would not have been possible without the exceptionally generous support and hospitality of the American Legion Post #1479 (Hogansburg), America Legion Post #939 (Brushton-Moira), American Legion Post #514 (Winthrop), Massena Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #1143, and our very own American Legion Post #925 of Norfolk.

We are very grateful to the Norfolk Fire Department for their assistance during the ride. We would also like to thank all of the members of the American Legion Riders for their time and diligence in helping make this a success.
