Every few years our friends from Norway come to America to ride the Mother Road from Chicago to Los Angeles. These Norwegian Veterans always stop at Post #331 and stay for a bit. Our Chapter rides up to meet then in Fanning, Mo and escorts them back to Post. It is always an amazing evening of stories and fellowship.
Toy Run October 2022
18 Riders, 11 bikes, 1 classic buggy and 30+ toys were donated to Smoovies in St. Robert for families in need this Christmas. The Riders gathered the toys and escorted them thru town, all while dressed for Halloween! A great time and a great cause.
