A Message from Stan Mauldin about RFA 2020
Post #233 American Legion Riders Director Ordia Brown and Co-Founders of Ride For America Commander Jim Nesmith & Stan Mauldin have released information on the most prestigious motorcycle event in the great state of Georgia, many times noted as the 2nd.most visited place in this great nation to show your patriotism on Memorial Day. Please see below information from Mr. Stan Mauldin:
I have received many kind calls and emails regarding the status of our twenty second Ride For America (R.F.A.) scheduled for May 25th. of this year. I had planned to ask for advice from all the great Americans motorcycle enthusiast that make R.F.A. a success year after year. But after meeting with Commander Bill Dolan (commander of Legion post 233 & his staff) director Ordia Brown & his riders of Post #233, Commander Nesmith (commander of Madison American Legion) together we have made a decision that I never dreamed would have to be made WE WILL NOT RIDE THIS YEAR!!! Given what we understand about the pandemic, the stay at home orders for quite a number of us and social distancing we felt it necessary to cancel this year’s R.F.A. Many of our great nation’s Memorial events have already been cancelled from Loganville to Washington D C. Please understand that this decision was long discussed, but unanimous. Although a number of restrictions have been eased, we care for you and your pass support enough to think of you and your family’s future health. The efforts and support needed to our many veterans, our active military and their children will not go away so if you or any of the past R.F.A. sponsors can support, please see my info above to contact me for your contribution. I understand that many of you may have had to struggle by making changes in your life and believe me we understand. The United States of America is the greatest country in the world, so the staff of Ride For America’s belief is that we will bounce back, sorry ride back to another Ride For America on Memorial Day 2021.
