Columbus, OH (PRWEB) July 14, 2012
On Friday, July 13th A.D. Farrow Co. Harley-Davidson, America’s Oldest Harley Dealer, will have the honor of hosting the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers & Troopers Motorcycle Club. The Harley Dealer is no stranger to hosting events. It very recently celebrated it’s 100th year Anniversary with a Celebration of the Century on June 23rd at its 18-acre NorthStar campus. The event featured multi-platinum band Warrant and a Fashion Show with students from The Ohio State University.
The Gala to be held Friday will be comprised of the 25,000 members of the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers representing 96 chapters across 35 states, making A.D. Farrow Co. the Clubhouse of the Soldiers. The Soldiers are gathering for their 2012 National Convention in the central Ohio city of Columbus. A.D. Farrow Co. Harley-Davidson has been a supporter of the Columbus, Ohio Chapter and was eager to entertain the National Association with a Gala featuring the band MoJoFlo and Harley-Davidson assets such as the Iron Elite Trailer.
The name Buffalo Soldiers was selected in order to pay homage to and ensure the legacy of African American Soldiers in the post Civil War era. The focus of the Club is to promote a positive image that would be respected in the community and throughout the country. The name Buffalo Soldiers supposedly originates from the Indians because of the similarity between their hair and the coat of the buffalo, many soldiers of the black regiments were recruited from the United States Colored Troops which served in the Civil War.
A.D. Farrow Co. Harley-Davidson is honored to host the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers & Troopers Motorcycle Club as an additional event in its Summer long series of events celebrating 100 years in business.
