Bikers, Veterans, Active Military and Concerned Citizens;
To honor all those who died during and after their efforts, in all the wars, to protect and defend our nation. We are Rolling to Remember.
For 32 years every Memorial Day, action has been taken to raise awareness for the critical issues facing our nation’s veterans. In 2020, we will continue the tradition through the “Rolling to Remember Challenge”.
As always, the health and safety of all riders and the veteran community is our top priority. Due to the federal and state restrictions on public gatherings and the guidance of public health officials amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the “Rolling to Remember” motorcycle demonstration will not take place in Washington, D.C. Instead, AMVETS National is asking each of you to ride 22 miles on Sunday, May 24, 2020 in your local communities.
Join me and my brothers Sunday May 24th in a salute to those men and women responsible for the freedoms we share. AMVETS Riders Chapter 4250 will be making the rounds of the local cemeteries in commemoration of “RIDE TO REMEMBER”, with a proper salute to all those who died in our defense as well as those who have taken their lives each day, due to the stresses of battle fatigue.
We ask that you wear PPE and keep safe distance from each other. Motorcycles will lead the procession and other vehicles to follow. Meet us at the VFW/AMVETS Hall, 45 Gene Furgason Ln, in Newaygo, MI, Sunday May 24 at 10am. Please email us with your intentions at, firstname.lastname@example.org, use “Ride To Remember, Newaygo” in the subject line.
