Military Appreciation Ceremonies

Altamont, New York - 16 Aug 2017



The Patriot Guard Riders have once again been invited to attend the Military Appreciation Ceremonies scheduled to be conducted at the Altamont Fairgrounds on August 16, 2017. The ceremonies will be conducted by the American Legion Riders, Helderberg Post 977 and will include the Presentation of Colors and Flag Retirement ceremony. Guest speaker for the event is Gold Star Family member Colonel Jack Clark, US Army, (Ret.). Colonel Clark's son, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Todd Clark, an Albany native and father of two, died tragically Saturday, June 8, 2013, while serving in Afghanistan.

Upon conclusion of the ceremonies, a special "Blending the Veterans" event will take place in the Dutch Barn, directly behind the Northrup Stage. This event celebrates all armed forces, past and present, and is being hosted by Cindy Pollard, owner of the Homefront Cafe in Altamont.

Let's have a strong PGR show of support in honor of our military, veterans, Gold Star Families and our ALR brothers and sisters.
