Legacy Scholarship reaches $609,131.00

I just watched the Tuesday session at National Convention. Departments and Legion Riders from all over the US gave their contributions to the National Comander.

The goal for this year was $400,000. 00. At Convention on Tuesday, august 25th donations have reached $609,131. !!!

This blows all the other years out of the water! It was a thrill to watch everyone give their donations - - it was a great thrill to see TJ get up and give $32,000 (Converse Texas???) wish we could have been there.

I just received word from Bad Bob Crouch that there are pictures out there - I'll keep posting!

Tina, I just wanted to say that this was my 1st run (Bad Bob's 3rd) with the riders and I loved every minute of it! Thank you for all your hard work on posting! As for the pictures we have, there's 103 on my Facebook profile. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do! A big "Hoorah" to all, for reaching over $600,000!!!!
