RidersRiders chapter in Aberdeen

The Warner Chapter of the AmericanLegion Riders meets on the SECOND SATURDAY of each month, at 7:00.  TheRiders are members of the American Legion Family (The American Legion, theAmerican Legion Auxiliary, and the Sons of the American Legion), as well astheir spouses.  Riders membership is regional, you can belong to any post,squadron, or unit in the Department (South Dakota) and still ride with theWarner Chapter.  The Riders are a program of The American Legion and thesponsoring post, not a motorcycle club.  While the Riders do share anenthusiasm for motorcycle riding, the primary goal is still service to thecommunity, state, and nation.  Feel free to read the chapterby-laws for more information, or to write the post with any questions.

Sons of The American Legion

There is interest in starting a Squadronof the SAL in Aberdeen, but more members are needed to charter one.  SALmembership is open to male descendants (including stepsons and adopted sons) ofLegionnaires, or of deceased veterans who were eligible for membership in TheAmerican Legion - members can range in age from elementary school toretirement.

The Sons can be a dynamic,active part of both the post and the community at large, but only if a squadronis started.  If you are interested in helping to charter an SAL Squadronin Aberdeen, please contact the post.
