Waterloo Memorial Day Parade

Canandaigua, New York - 26 May 2018


Again this year, we have been requested to attend the 2018 Waterloo Memorial Day Parade and escort our veteran heroes from the VA Medical Center in Canandaigua, to Waterloo N.Y. 

The Patriot Guard always plays an intricate part in this event, in the escort, assistance with transport to and from the VA Medical Center to Waterloo, and especially with escorting our veterans in wheelchairs in the parade itself. Those members who have participated in years past understand how moving this can and will be again this year.

Primary Staging Time: 07:45 A.M.

Canandaiguia VAMC
400 Fort Hill Avenue 
Behind Building 7, parking lot.
Canandaigua, New York - 14424

For those interested in meeting before the formal staging, meet 07:00 at Tim Horton's on the corner of North Road and Route 332 ( Main Street ) Canandaiguia N.Y. 

Bill "Patch" Fuhrmann will be coordinating the loading and escort to Waterloo of the veterans and Ride Captain Dan Ritz will be handling those PGR members in walking-pushing wheelchairs in the parade, and also the escort back to the VA Center after the veterans lunch at the VFW. 

The American Legion Riders will be leading off the parade this year. Parade line-up is at 10:30 AM. Start time is 11:00 AM sharp.
