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.

HOTH Mission


Fall Fest Kickoff to Veterans Week

Elma, New York - 04 Nov 2017


ABOUT THE MISSION:

We have been invited to participate in a very special event. As part of the Made In America Store's Fall Fest, there will be an Iroquois Foundation "4-Miler Salutes Veterans" race. At the Finish Line, two local Marine Corps Veterans who earned Purple Hearts 60 years apart - one during the Battle of Iwo Jima, the other during Operation Iraqi Freedom - will meet for the first time. There will be a special presentation of a Patriot Plaque to the OIF Veteran, and a gift to the WWII Veteran. There will a birthday cake to celebrate the upcoming 242nd Birthday of the USMC on 10 November, and a kickoff to Veterans' Day celebrations. OF SPECIAL NOTE: The Iroquois Foundation designates Buffalo Niagara Honor Flight as the recipient charity. The Fall Fest 2017 runs from 9:30 AM-2:00 PM, with many Veteran-owned vendors.
NOTE: The Requester, Dorothy, is a BN Honor Flight volunteer and will be at the Honor Flight Send-Off that morning.

Special Instructions:

SPECIAL PARKING INSTRUCTIONS: Please access the store parking lot thru the Northeast Collision entrance off Maple Road. A driveway in the back, on the right, has access to West Maple Court, go up the driveway next to Aurora Optometric, this will put you close to the store's side entrance. This way we will avoid the Finish Line of the race, the timekeepers and the runners. Please advise the Volunteer Firefighters directing traffic that you are with PGR.
Please arrive on time with a clean 3x5 American Flag or USMC flag, and dress for the weather.
Please do whatever you're able to help support and witness this historic event, as the brotherhood of the US Marine Corps transcends six decades of service and sacrifice.


Flags & Water:

Flags Will NOT Be Provided, Please Bring Your Own.
If you have large bike flags, please bring them.
Water WILL NOT be provided, please bring your own.
