Riders from across the Department of Virginia recently completed a two-day event known as the Virginia In State Legacy Scholarship Run.
During the ride this year they stopped for fuel at the Citgo Gas Station on Virginia Avenue in Crewe, VA. They were greeted by Councilwoman Wendy Bowen who had a proclamation from town Mayor Greg Eanes to be presented to Legionnaire Jim Althouse, Chairman of the Virginia American Legion Riders. The proclamation declared the 19th of July 2019 as American Legion Rider Day in the town of Crewe.
Through the superior efforts of the Virginia American Legion Riders and the support of Cities and Towns such as Crewe, VA, the ride was a total success. Through the many donations received during the ride they surpassed the $25,000 donated last year for the National American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund.
