AMVETS Riders and Supporters,
I am honored to serve as National Riders Treasurer for the past 5½ years, we are almost half way through another year and Riders have a lot going on across the Nation as usual.
First I would like to remind everyone to make sure to file their 990 for their Chapter and Department if you haven’t already.
At National Riders we have a $250- death benefit, plus we have 3 $1,000- Scholarships and you can find the applications for both on the website under the publications tab.
This year our new National Riders 2nd Vice John Reando has developed a great gun raffle to raise money for National Riders, PLEASE PARTICIPATE!! This fund raiser is what helps us from increasing dues and also allows us to have the Death Benefit and Scholarship funds, both of these funds were developed to give back to the Membership.
At National we have worked very hard at cutting expenses in order to maintain these benefits and still be able to do everything else needed to support the Riders Organization and we need this fund raiser to succeed in order to balance our budget.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at Mid-Year in Florida.
1st place - Alan Smith, Ohio
2nd place - Amy McDowell, GA
3rd place - John Hardy, GA
National 1st Vice
