Copper Area News

San Tan Valley American Legion Post 97 is hosting a Car and Motorcycle show on April 26, 2014, at Queen Creek Olive Mill. All proceeds raised at the event will directly benefit ongoing, or new, youth, veteran, and San Tan Valley community programs.

This family event takes place from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. with over 70 cars and motorcycles expected to register. Award ceremonies in 13 categories will begin at 2:00 p.m. Admission is free to the event, which will also feature raffle prizes, vendors, free music, food & drink, free wine tasting, and more.

One of the many programs supported by American Legion Post 97 is American Legion Baseball. Post 97 sponsors six teams throughout Pinal County, which includes teams and players from three San Tan Valley High Schools – Poston Butte, Combs, and San Tan Foothills.

“The expense of youth sports in the local area is increasing,” said Jeffrey Kramer, Marketing Advisor for Post 97. “The purpose of funding different youth programs is to guide youths, ages 14 – 19, and help them develop leadership skills.”

In addition to many youth programs, Post 97 sponsors programs for veterans, their families, and to the San Tan Valley community at-large.

San Tan Valley American Legion Post 97 Commander Alan Pease is credited with the development of youth programs throughout the local area. One of the goals of Pease and other Post 97 members is to build a community center for youths in San Tan Valley.

“The youth of our generation must be supported and provided with programs that will encourage teamwork, instill confidence, and provide activities to keep them focused,” Pease said in a statement.
