Updated 8 March 2022

Based on the most current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines: Protect Yourself and Your Family from COVID-19, and CDC Guidelines of 3 March 2022, going forward, the Lead Ride Captain for any mission will be responsible for determining whether PGR members will have to mask up or not. Please ensure that you have a mask with you, should the need arise, and respect the LRC’s decision in these matters.

Special Information:

PGR Members will form a flag line for the arrival of the family (expected about 9:30am) and mourners at the funeral home. The flag line will continue through calling hours (10 am-12 noon). Services will follow calling hours and are expected to last 30-45 minutes. Following the services at the funeral home, PGR members will escort Mr. Sage and the mourners to the cemetery for graveside services and military honors.

If you cannot make it to calling hours or the services, please consider meeting us at the North Pembroke Cemetery, 8021 N. Pembroke Rd, Batavia, NY 14020.
