Warrensburg, MO ALR Group Works Gas Stop

I received the following email from 'Mud' . . . I took this picture of a few of their bikes with the flags waving while at the gas stop...

Hi Tina,

Just wanted you to know that the Joplin, MO fuel stop was run by ALR Chapter 131 from Warrensburg, Missouri. We left our post at 5:30 am on Monday to make the 180 mile run to Joplin to help out the Legacy Run. 19 bikes made the trip with Old Glory waiving from our bikes...two of our officers ran to Springfield to catch up with the Run at that fuel stop and rode on to Joplin then helped out with that fuel stop. After the fuel stop that I believe only took 20 minutes (I was told the fastest ever) our Chapter presented a check in the amount of $600.00 to the National American Legion Commander as a chapter donation to the Legacy Scholarship Fund.

We ride hundreds of miles each year supporting our Veterans and Military personal and we like to coin our phrase "THIS IS WHAT WE DO! KICKSTANDS UP - LETS RIDE!"
