With good attendance at a recent planning meeting, local motorcycle enthusiasts with military ties are moving forward to establish a chartered American Legion Rider organization in Fillmore County.
Attendees at a meeting in March were in general consensus to begin to organize a local Legion riders group based in Geneva. Officers assigned at the meeting were director—Tom Ortgies; assistant director—Scott Houck; treasurer—John Brower and secretary—Donna Norrie. The officers are members of the American Legion, Sons of the American Legion (SAL) and Legion Auxiliary.
The group’s next meeting is planned for Monday, May 13, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Geneva VFW Club.
