American Legion Riders Zelienople Post 474
We have a very special episode for all of you as Mike Boehning and Dawn Smoot from the American Legion Riders Zelienople Post 474, join the show.
Our episode starts off with a general description of what the American Legion does and it's importance in our communities. Mike and Dawn share stories of all the things that the Legion does from assisting Veterans & their families, placing flags at grave cites in Zelie/Ellwood City, to providing a place where active and retired Veterans can come socialize. There are a lot of amazing things that the Zelienople Post 474 does that will always go unrecognized as they do it to help their fellow brothers & sisters, not for recognition!
Mike and Dawn talk about the American Legion Riders and their upcoming fundraiser event. Mike shares his experience from participating in Rolling to Remember in Washington DC. The story alone is worth the listen! People are able to still participate if interested, just need to book a hotel room for the weekend.
The main purpose of the episode is the Zelienople American Legion Riders are hosting their 7th Annual Benefit Run on Saturday, July 10th. This motorcycle ride will start at the Zelienople American Legion and end at the Unionville American Legion in Rochester, PA. The total ride is over 100 miles but it ends with a wonderful Picnic! All proceeds from this run will benefit Homes For Our Troops who build specially adapted homes for severely injured veterans. The Legion Riders were able to raise over $10,000 for Homes For Our Troops in 2019 and we hope they surpass this number again in 2021!
