Members of Wilmington Veterans Post 49 American Legion Riders recently held their annual “Ride To Remember, held each year to raise money for a specific veterans-related cause.

Monies raised from past rides have purchased bricks at the Clinton County Veterans Memorial, been donated to The Ohio Veterans Home in Georgetown, to the Clinton County Veterans Memorial, and donated to many others over the last 14 years.

This year’s designated recipient was the Honor Guard for the Dayton National Cemetery. This all-volunteer group of veterans performs military honors at every interment of a veteran in Dayton National Cemetery.

A group of Post 49 Riders traveled to VFW Post 8312 in Beavercreek to present a check for $1,000 to members of the Honor Guard.
