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.

9/11 Remembrance Ceremony

Avon, New York - 11 Sep 2017


On this upcoming 16th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our Nation, our PGR participation has again been requested to assist in honoring the hundreds of First Responders and Military Personnel - and thousands of civilians - who gave their lives that day.

Last year our PGR participated in this Ceremony for the third year, and our presence was very much appreciated. St. Agnes School (in its 142nd year) in the Village of Avon is a small Catholic school serving children of all faiths from Pre-School thru Sixth Grade in Livingston County and southern Monroe County communities.

This school has a strong Patriotic history of teaching our future leaders in the respect and celebration of our Nation, Military and First Responders. It was very rewarding last year to witness the respect and patriotism of these young people.

Other participants in this ceremony will include the American Legion, VFW, local Law Enforcement and Fire/EMS Personnel, and local government officials. Those of you who have participated in this Ceremony know how much the PGR is appreciated.

Primary Staging Time: 08:30 A.M.

Circle Park in the Village of Avon.
Circle Park is located in the center of the Village of Avon on Routes 5 & 20. It features the Civil War Monument, American Legion and VFW Monument, and an arboretum.
