At ALR Chapter 34 our priorities are “Family”, “Job” and then Chapter. Chapter 34 is a tight group which has a long and diverse history. We are self-sufficient and keep close eye on our chapter. Our purpose is to: Participate in Parades and other ceremonies that are in keeping with the Aims and Purposes of the American Legion. To promote motorcycle safety programs and to provide a social atmosphere for the American Legion Members who share the same interest. We shall use our Association to promote and support programs of the American Legion through service to our Community, State and Nation.
The American Legion Riders was never intended to be a "Motorcycle Club". Its secondary function is working with the Local Post promoting membership; the Legion Riders has brought in members that may not have joined the American Legion were it not for the Riders program. The Riders program has been able to spark a new interest in joining the American Legion. Some of these members, who joined for the Legion Rider program, have gone on to serve as Officers within their Post. Conversely, we have also had Post members go out and purchase motorcycles just to join the Riders.
