Motorcycle ride to raise funds for Wreaths Across America recipients in Southern Tier
ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- There are more than 8,000 veterans' headstones at Woodlawn National Cemetery. But with current funding, only 6,500 of those headstones will be decorated with a wreath come National Wreaths Across America Day in December.
The American Legion Post 443 in conjunction with I.A. Riders is hosting a motorcycle ride on Saturday, August 17 to help ameliorate this issue.
All vehicles are welcome, and admission is $15 per rider and $10 per passenger.
All of the proceeds raised will go toward laying the wreaths at Woodlawn National Cemetery. Any extra money raised will be donated to the Bath National Cemetery for the same purpose.
