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 Memorial Event

Williamsville, New York - 11 Sep 2017


Charles Williams, President of the Red Knights Chapter 47, has once again extended an invitation to the PGR to respectfully participate in this Commemoration, as we have for the past 5 years.

It is expected that this year's event will be even larger than last year's, with multiple Military, Veteran, Fire, EMS, and Law Enforcement agencies, Honor Guards, and other groups. Wide news coverage is expected.

As before, we will be given the Honor of providing a Flag Line around the monument and along the sidewalk as the Red Knights arrive with the wreath, and during the Ceremony.

Primary Staging Time: 5:00 P.M.

From Chapter 47 Pres. Charles Williams: "Once the event is over, we would be honored to shake hands and meet all who came. Please join us at the Hilltop Inn and Grove at 11389 Genesee Street. The Inn is about a ¼ mile west of Millgrove VFD. The owners, and honorary members of our chapter, James and Melissa have been huge supporters of our club and the motorcycling community in general and have opened their doors for us once again. We are here to honor our country and be sure that the sacrifices made by everyone on that day, and every day since are never forgotten. This event is free and open to anyone whether they ride or would just like to attend the ceremony so feel free to pass the word to your friends and family."
