Spencerport Kiwanis

The Kiwanis Club of Spencerport heard about the Patriot Guard Riders at a recent meeting. Founded in 2005 to shield families of fallen heroes from those that would disrupt the services of their loved ones, the Patriot Guard Riders has grown to include thousands of members across all 50 states in the US. They are a 100 percent volunteer 501(c)(3) organization. As their membership has grown, so has the scope of their mission. They also honor first responders as well as our military veterans. Additionally, they have an active Help On The Homefront (HOTH) program, which provides assistance to our veterans and their families. To join the Patriot Guard Riders go to their website,, and click on the login/join link in the upper menu to register. As for requirements, anyone and everyone can join and stand with them. One doesn’t need to be a veteran, or ride a bike. All one needs is respect for our military, veterans, and first responders; and desire to show that respect to them and their families.
