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.



Members,

It's that time of year again and the Blue Star Mother's have again requested our presence for their "Light of Love" tree-lighting ceremony in Canandaigua.

Stage: 12:30 PM  Sun, Dec 1st, 2013

Location: Kershaw Park gazebo, Lakeshore Dr., Canandaigua, NY

MAP

The Patriot Guard Riders will form a flag line in front of the gazebo while members of the Armed Services place a star on the Christmas tree to represent the local men and women serving in each branch of the military.

This is a wonderful ceremony that the PGR has been invited to for the past few years and the Blue Star Mothers have been very appreciative of our participation.

Bring your American flags to fly, but feel free to bring flags for military branches, POW/MIA, PGR, etc., as well. I have flags for the Army, Navy, USMC and Air Force if anyone would like to use them (you'll need a pole), just let me know. Anyone have a Coast Guard flag? Bring it along. This ceremony is all about the community showing the Christmas spirit to those who protect us in the service of our country. 

Hope to see you all there and, as always, thank you for everything you do!
