The American Legion Riders Post 1451 celebrated their own 10 year anniversary along with Niagara Hospice House. The riders attended the June 5 Niagara Hospice House 10 Year Anniversary Open House, commemorating the event with a flag ceremony and donation to Niagara Hospice. Arriving by motorcycle, members conducted the ceremony at the Niagara Hospice Service Persons Memorial, located at the entrance to the Niagara Hospice Memorial Gardens.

The Service Persons Memorial was established to provide a unique opportunity to honor and remember those who have served our country and community in the armed services, or as police or fire professionals. The memorial provides a lasting tribute for families and friends to honor those who have served, whether or not they ever received hospice care. These tributes are available to anyone in the community wishing to remember loved ones in a very special way, while also supporting the work of Niagara Hospice.

The American Legion Riders commemorate Armed Forces Day each year by retiring the flag that flies over Niagara Hospice and replacing it with a new one. They have given over $31,000 to various veterans charities over their 10 years in existence. Their group is made up of American Legion members along with Patriot Guard riders.

Niagara Hospice has provided end-of-life comfort, care and support since 1988 to over 25,000 Niagara County individuals and families faced with terminal illness. No one is ever denied hospice care due to inability to pay. For more information, visit www.NiagaraHospice.org or call 716-439-4417.
