PGR Benefit Car Wash: Tomball, April 26 (0900 - 1400 hrs)

PGR Benefit Car Wash
Tomball, April 26 (0900 - 1400 hrs)

"ALL RIDERS, PGR MEMBERS, PGR FRIENDS, & SUPPORTERS"


Boy Scout Troop 471 is holding a Benefit Car Wash to support the efforts of the Patriot Guard Riders on behalf of our FALLEN TROOPS & THEIR FAMILIES!

If you are going to be in town, take a little time out of your day and ride or drive by the TOMBALL WALMART PARKING LOT, 27650 TOMBALL PARKWAY, TOMBALL, TX and let them know how much you appreciate their efforts on our & the TROOPS behalf. These young people are our future riders and leaders. Lets repay their support with support of our own.

You'll get to meet some great young people and get that hunk of tin cleaned up that you hate to wash anyway. This will only take a bit and they will know that you support them and the PGR. Can it get much better than that?

THANKS,
STEVE, BOOMER, RICK & JOHNNY

That was great! Thanks. I wasn't there today, since I got caught up with work. I hope it went well too, considering the weather this morning.

I was up around 6:30 and it was really nice out, atleast in Tomball. It stormed pretty bad last night as I was falling asleep but I'm not sure how long it lasted. Then again the weather always looks perfect when I'm trapped inside for 11 hours

Tomball generally seems to support their local causes really well when they host car washes, etc. Hopefully today was no different, I really wish I had time to get down there today and do my part.

I believe you. The one thing I noticed when we do a PGR ride in Tomball, and your area in general, is that the entire City seems to come out and pay respects to the soldier and his family. The most moving moments I have experienced as a PGR Rider is when we have processions going through Cities like Tomball. The people stop what they're doing, and line up the streets to stand tall with their hands over their hearts, and the Vets stand at attention and salute. American flags waving everywhere we look.

Stopped by

We got a chance to get by there and the kids loved it. I think the parents loved it to. Myself and my partner took our ladder truck by and the kids did a great job washing it... it actually saved us from washing it. We also got a couple of flyers and plan on joining the PGR. I also have of couple of buddies I work with in Houston Fire that want to join. It was a great day and hope to see ya around.

One of the Moms there took a cuople of pics and hopefully she will drop them by the Firehouse, we would like to hang them up in our hallway.

I hope it isn't common for PG Riders to not wear helmets. Saw one today with no skull gear on.

I did two rides for a soldier, 21 years old like I was at the time, on my V-Star when I was living in Nebraska.

The first ride was to escort the body from the airport to his hometown. The second was a couple of days later, for the funeral.

When we rode into the small town on the first trip, every single person in that town was outside standing along our route from the highway to the funeral home. Every person was holding a small American flag.

I couldn't have told you the last time I had cried, but it was impossible not to be overwhelmed that day. It was the most amazing thing.

I recommend everyone here go on a ride with the Patriot Guard Riders. Even if only once. There are no requirements. All bikes are welcome. Just sign up at the website and look for an upcoming ride. Show up at the meeting place at the posted time/date, and the ride leaders will take care of the rest.


RIP PFC Chris Pfeifer

That must've been great! Thanks for joining the PGR, and I hope to see you on a ride one day.

Well, when 99.9% of the PGR seem to be cruiser types, what can you expect? Nevertheless, it's not common, and at least they're riding with the PGR. Most wear a lid.
