The Finger Lakes Regional Burn Association (FLRBA), is another organization close to our hearts. We hold a Chicken BBQ each year, along with other donations and deliver them to Camp Courage along with other Red Knights Chapters in the area. Camp Courage is a children's burn camp held at The Watson Homestead in East Campbell run by the FLRBA. To date our chapter has raised $18,000 for FLRBA.
Who are the Red Knights NY42
We are The Red Knights New York Chapter 42, hosted by The Bath Volunteer Fire Department. Our chapter is made up of firefighter's or retired firefighter's from fire departments from all over Steuben County who ride motorcycles, and their families who are Social members. Firefighter's share a bond and camaraderie and are very family oriented, and this organization is an extension of that. We host as well as support others in charitable rides around our area and beyond.
The Red Knights is an International Firefighter Motorcycle Club with more than 300 Chapters and 9,000 members worldwide. The club first formed in Boylston, Massachusetts on October 19th 1982. In July of 1983, a chapter was formed in Connecticut. In October of that year a second Massachusetts chapter was formed. Soon applications came in from such distant places as Nevada and Louisiana. In August of 1983 the founding members realized the organization was rapidly growing beyond their original expectations. To properly handle this growth they elected a committee to serve as a National Board of Directors. With applications from Ontario and Saskatchewan, Canada, the club became the Red Knights International Firefighters Motorcycle Club.
