Congratulations the "Quiet " Wyatt Mailard for winning the competition and for donating his prize money to the VIC
We had a wonderful ride out to the Legion post in estancia. They made us feel extreemely welcome and also cooked us lunch. We will definately visit them again.
Today riders were invited to come and meet the new Chapter 10 officers. The turnout was fantastic. It was awesome to see so many chapter 10 riders at the same place at the same time. Several riders were able to get their dues paid and we even signed up a few new riders. Free food was supplied by Iris and Cervantes as well as BBQ and Cake from other Legion family members and friends. I would like to say a big thank you to the Post for letting us use the hall and to Luis for his amazing bartending. I couldn't have asked for a better start to the 2014 year. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event happen and everyone that attended. I am excited to keep the momentum rolling and watch this chapter grow and flourish. Make sure to check out all new events posted under the "upcoming events" section and on the calendar.
The American Legion National Commander, Daniel M. Dellinger, spent a week traveling across New Mexico visiting many of the Legion Posts. He was welcomed from the airport by a large group of Legion Riders that escorted him to Post 49 and then later to his hotel. On Monday night he came to a dinner at the post and spoke about his plans for the upcoming year. A huge thanks to the Auxillary for their hard and impressive work on the dinner and the decorations.
Despite the inhospitable weather conditions, we were still able to to put together and execute an awesome toy run. At the end of the day we were able to collect a little over $500 to buy toys with for the Post's Christmas party on Saturday 12/21/13. A huge thank you goes out to everyone that helped and contributed. There will be a lot of happy kids and families thanks to your efforts.
