Accepting recognition: Guilderland Police Chief Carol Lawlor, left, prepares to accept a plaque from Bill Schaff of the Patriot Guard Riders at the start of Tuesday night’s town board meeting. When the riders roll through Guilderland on their motorcycles, often escorting a veteran to the airport for a Freedom Flight to Washington, D.C. or accompanying a hearse to a funeral, Schaff said the professional and courteous response of the Guilderland Police was “very heartwarming.”

Listening to their leader: Members of the Patriot Guard riders, over two dozen strong, filled the first two rows of seats at the Guilderland town board’s meeting hall Tuesday night, showing their respect for the work done by Guilderland Police. They listened as Bill Schaff spoke and presented a plaque to the police chief, Carol Lawlor. Then they rose from their seats and shook hands with or embraced Lawlor and a long line of uniformed officers headed by Captain Curtis Cox who stood, in uniform, at the front of the hall.
