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.

Veterans Appreciation Service

Sprakers, New York - 05 Nov 2017


The pastor of the Charleston Church has once again asked the PGR to act as the Honor Guard for their Veteran's Appreciation Service. We were part of this service last year and the committee was so grateful we were there to help out, they have requested our return.

There will be a flag line outside the entrance to the church to receive the Veteran's arrival. The Honor Guard will then enter the church prior to the service and stand colors from all branches of service as a musical dedication starts the program. The colors will then be posted and PGR will exit the church. At the conclusion of the church service, we will retrieve the colors and leave the building and reform a flag line outside.

The church has invited those PGR present to stay for a full turkey buffet with all the trimmings after the service in the banquet hall. The Veteran's will be introduced and a meal will be shared. Those who attended last year will attest to the fantastic meal and to meet and greet the Veteran's. Several of these Veteran's are Honor Flight members.

Primary Staging Time: 10:15 A.M.
