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. 


To sponsor a wreath at Saratoga National Cemetery click HERE.

If you would rather mail in an order, click ORDER FORM.


Thank you.

Once again we have been asked to lead the Waterloo Memorial Day Bike Rally through the Finger Lakes Region.

As some of you are already aware if you have attended in the past, you may have received your registration form. For those of you who have never been on this ride, Waterloo NY is the Birthplace of Memorial Day and there is a long weekend full of events and parades.

This ride is a great fund raiser, and benefits the Waterloo VFW, Waterloo American Legion and the Patriot Guard Riders of NY. The route is a wonderful tour of the countryside with great views of the lakes. It’s a leisurely ride supported by Law Enforcement along the route. It has a halfway stop for a breather and the Boy Scouts will have refreshments. At the end of our run, the Waterloo VFW puts on a fantastic meal.

I need your help with this run, our organization and knowledge of group riding is essential to the success of the ride. The PGR leads this ride and the more Flags we have flying the safer it is for us to be seen. Please help me make this 10th anniversary run a success by showing your support for a great day of riding.
