The First Annual Veterans Bike Blessing and Pancake Breakfast fundraiser brought out a crowd on Saturday morning. The Orange County American Legion Riders and Hudson Valley Veterans Task Force teamed up on Easter weekend for the blessing of bikes and ride at the Orange County Veterans Cemetery in Goshen, followed by pancakes at American Legion Post 1443 in Greenwood Lake.

The blessing was performed by Chaplain Rev. Robert J. Sweeney and led by coordinator of the Orange County American Legion Riders Chris Holshek. Information on veteran services was provided at the event, and funds raised will support Orange County American Legion “vet-to-vet” support activities, in which veterans assist other veterans.
