As we are approaching the holiday season, it's an excellent time to remember our fallen and their ultimate sacrafice; another way to remember them is to sponsor a wreath.  Sponsoring a wreath through Wreaths Across America is easy.  Whether at Saratoga National Cemetery or another cemetery where you wish to have a wreath placed. Just click on the image to enter Wreaths Across America.  Simply click on the DONATE at the bottom of their page.  Thank you.

The Patriot Guard Riders of Eastern New York have once again been granted Group Sponsorship status within the Wreaths Across America organization. So what does our Group Sponsorship status mean? Well for every two wreaths that are ordered - using our group code – Wreaths Across America will donate another wreath - we get 3 for 2.

Thank you.

Welcome to Western New York, PGRNY Region #1, comprising the 9 most western counties in New York State. 

Recently, due to both media coverage and active membership we have been blessed with many new members.  We also enjoy participation from members from Canada and Pennsylvania. 

Our Region has some very dedicated members who go out of their way to participate.  We hope you find the time to join us in our Mission.  Once you complete a Mission, I think you’ll find the “Thanks” we receive from the Families we serve, enormously rewarding.
