5 GOOD LUCK to all the New Officers. Monday, July 2nd there will be NO BURGER NITE due to the 4th of July Celebration. BURGER NITE will commence again on Monday July 9th. Commander Rick Legion Riders Hi Legion Riders. We will not be having a meeting in July, but we will start our regu- lar meetings again in August. I hope everyone is getting time to get out on their bikes and have some fun. The Fourth of July is a very busy time for us with security, helping with the bar and the parade, there is a ton of things going on here at the Legion . Also, make some time to come out and have some fun.
6 I know I will see everyone at some point during these 6 days. There is a ride in Apple Valley on the 14th if anyone is inter- ested. I know some people don't like to volunteer, but we need everyone to step up to the plate. We are a TEAM, there is no I in TEAM. Those of you that are volunteering, Thank You; we lead by example. Yes I know, we all have jobs and very busy lives. Look forward to getting together for a group ride after the 4th; if anyone has any suggestions call or email and we can try to set something up. Keep the rubber on the road and the shiny side up!

As you commemorate and celebrate our Independence from Great Britain, come in and help out at our Legion .
8 Be safe in the water, on the road and everywhere. Remem- ber how the framers of our Independence relied on God, and based many of the docu- ments on their Biblical worldview. If you know of a homebound veteran let me know. Do you know where your soul is going after you pass on? If not, talk to me about it. Ron Miller, 651-464-5549.
