The American Legion Riders Post 181 from Sandwich was recognized at the 12th district meeting in April and received the prestigious “Legacy Scholarship Award.”

The club was recognized for the supportive events that it is involved in and the support for the Legacy Scholarship, which ensures higher education for children whose parents lost their lives while serving our country since 9/11/01.

American Legion Riders Director Bob Lawrence presented a check to Celeste Latham designated toward blacktopping the parking lot at the VFW. Funds for the donation were raised through the “Bowl for Vets” event held in January. A check was also presented to Todd Latham, commander for Sandwich VFW Post 1486, designated for blacktopping the parking lot.

The next membership meeting for American Legion Riders is 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 31, at the Sandwich VFW, 713 S. Main St. in Sandwich.
