    The Sgt. Devin A. Snyder Memorial Foundation is holding the 7th Annual Sgt. Devin Snyder Ride to Remember on Saturday, June 1. The event starts and ends at Wayland American Legion Post 402, 102 N. Main St., Wayland, NY. Registration is from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., with kick stands up at noon. In addition to Wayland Post, the ride is supported by American Legion Riders Chapter 905 in Springwater. See Ride Poster

    Proceeds from the ride will benefit the Research and Recognition Project, which has developed the RTM protocol to treat PTSD, noted Randy Chiverton, a Sons of the American Legion member with Post 805 in Cohocton.

    “Devin was a beautiful and kind hearted soldier whom we lost before her time due to an I.E.D. in Afghanistan,” Chiverton said. “This is a wonderful event to honor Devin and all of our fallen heroes… This is an incredibly well-organized event that takes place on a scenic route with all the necessary intersections blocked and a Sheriff’s Department escort. The ride is followed by a great meal, and entertainment is provided by local country music sensation Flint Creek.”
