Legion Riders “saddle up” to support injured soldiers on Armed Forces Day

NORWICH – Over the last five years, the American Legion Riders of Norwich’s Warren Eaton Post 189 have raised roughly $7,000 for the Landstuhl Hospital Care Project, which supports American soldiers wounded in combat overseas. This Saturday, Armed Forces Day, the veterans group will be saddling up to support this cause once again with their sixth annual Poker Run.



According to Ride Captain Lex Danyluk, around 165 bikes participated in the run last year.

“I’m hoping for more this year,” he said.

The event will take place rain or shine Saturday. Registration will open at 10:30 a.m. at the Lt. Warren Eaton American Legion Post 189, 29 Sheldon St. in Norwich. The entry fee will be $10 per hand. Bikes will leave the post at 11:30 a.m.
