About Lake Legion Riders

In June of 2018, having stopped into American Legion Post 313 located on beautiful Freeman Lake in North Chelmsford on a number of occasions while out riding, a group of six riders from Chelmsford, Billerica, Lowell and Pepperell decided to propose an American Legion Riders Chapter to the Commander.  We were excited and thrilled when the Post agreed and sponsored us. The Lake Legion Riders were born.

Knowing that there are many Veterans who sadly end up being homeless after serving their country, we decided that our focus would be helping local Vets get back on their feet.  We support The Crescent House in Lowell, a transitional housing program through the Bedford Veterans Administration Hospital.  They offer a unique rehabilitation program which is designed to intervene in the cycle of homelessness and institutionalization by providing an environment in which veterans can acquire skills and supports needed to function productively and independently in competitive employment and community based housing. It is the largest program in the U.S. offers 42 beds to both men and women.  Vets across the country come to Massachusetts for this program and because Massachusetts is Veteran-friendly. The Program lasts nine months.

We received our American Legion Rider Charter from Chairman Louis Brault from the Dept. of Massachusetts Legion Riders on October 6, 2018.
