The Riders escorted American Legion color guards at parades in Cedarburg, Mequon - Thiensville, and Saukville. Riders District President Elmer Prenzlow said he was proud of the turnout for the parades because the "Legion Riders are a popular unit at parades with their patriotically decorated motorcycles, and represent the values of the American Legion and its members well".
