The American Legion Riders are Legionnaires, Legion Auxiliary, and Sons of the American Legion who ride motorcycles (350 cc and above) in support of our local communities and American Legion programs. We participate in veteran support activities, parades, and motorcycle events that are in keeping with the goals of the American Legion.
Chapter 28 of American Legion Post 28 (Bonnie Sloan) is in the 8th District of the Indiana American Legion Riders. We are located at 1930 McDonald Lane, New Albany, IN 47150.
If you meet the below requirements and wish to join our organization, welcome!
Dues for the American Legion Riders are $15.00 per year in addition to the annual dues of the Legion, Auxiliary, or S.A.L. You do not have to be a member of American Legion Post 28 to be a member of American Legion Riders Chapter 28, but you must be a member of the American Legion, Auxiliary, or Sons of American Legion, and be able to show a current membership card in order to qualify to join ALR Chapter 28. If you have a membership at another post and wish to keep it there you are certainly welcome to do that. Of course, if you do not already have a post home, then we would love for you to consider joining American Legion Post 28 as well as American Legion Riders Chapter 28! You may however only belong to any one ALR chapter.
