American Legion Post 111 Organizes Veterans Benefit Ride
American Legion Riders of Post 111 organized a benefit ride for Operation Not Forgotten. The ride started out at Hooters in Hiram and ended at Post 111 of Scoggins Road. Benefit riders were greeted with BBQ, provided by the Happy Hog in Hiram, a raffle, silent auction, and a live band. Executive Director, Steve Schiffman was extremely grateful and pleased with the turnout and reception from the local community. Prizes were donated by local business from the community. Vic Williams of Vic Williams Tire and Auto, Raymond Phillips of Patriot Pawn-N-Shop, and Brian Stover of BLD Rolloff all made contributions to help because of providing important assistance to our Paulding County military veterans.
The mission of Operation Not Forgotten is to provide services that support the well-being of veterans and their families. Veterans in need of assistance are connected with other coach veterans, buddies they can trust and relate with to coach them through any difficulties. The purpose is to measurably enhance and improve a veteran's quality of life and functioning in four areas: mental, emotional, social, and spiritual. Operation Not Forgotten is a program of Life Renewed International, an all-volunteer non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization, and was created to help veterans and their families achieve a better quality of life.
The American Legion Riders are members of the American Legion who are also motorcycle enthusiasts. They can be found participating in parades, partaking in motorcycling events, and supporting the communities in which they live, work, and play. Members of the ALR come from the Legion, the Legion Auxiliary, and the Sons of the American Legion. The American Legion Riders are a family-oriented organization.
